I have always been interested in different coding languages, but growing up in southern Virginia I was not exposed to these avenues when I was young. I mostly grew up thinking that I would go to law school after college and become a lawyer. About half way through my college career, I came to the conclusion that law school was not for me and decided to focus on my political science studies without a clear plan on how I would use them in the job market. After graduation, I got a contracting job with the Department of Veteran’s Affairs as a technical writer without a technical background. A few of my co-workers knew how to code and showed me some basics in our spare time. This re-sparked my interest in code and my passion in learning new things.
