More About Me

I am currently a student at Austin Community College striving to get an associates degree in computer science. My immediate goal is to make a positive impact on everyone I encounter. My short-term goal is to go to a four-year university and get a B.S.A. in computer science. My long-term goal is to be able to use my accumulated knowledge and skill to make the lives of others more fulfilled and easier.

Howdy!

I'm currently a college freshman. This is my first semester of programming classes and I'm in love! I love the instant gratification of writing something and then watching it come to life. I love the challenge with every problem I face. Although I only know Python and am teaching myself HTML and CSS, I don't let that slow me down from solving any coding challenges I encounter. After all, how do I know what I need to learn if I�m not exposed to real life examples?

For a long time, I thought I wanted to grow up and become an accountant. I loved math and I liked seeing results. The picture was always fuzzy, but I saw myself sitting in isolation clicking away at a calculator for maybe a handful of people to see before my work would disappear into one of a million manilla folders. My senior year of high school I found myself very unsatisfied with that fuzzy image. I wanted to do something much bigger and much better. Then It came to me, programming! I stumbled across the idea when I made friends with a now back-end software developer. Now, wait, I had played around with HackerRank before and I really like it. But I never had any idea on how to pursue a profession in this field or that it was even really an option. Especially considering my small town high school didn't emphasize tech-related jobs, But the more we started talking about what he did for work, I somehow was able to see my future much clearer. Me sitting in an office, clicking away at a keyboard, that hundreds, maybe even thousands of people would see and use, because it would be one of a million website.

"So, I guess we are who we are for alot of reasons. And maybe we'll never know most of them. But even if we don't have the power to choose where we come from, we can still choose where we go from there. We can still do things. And we can try to feel okay about them."
