 Why did you join Interface Web School?

“I know that coding is going to continue to grow in importance and I saw this as a unique opportunity to learn a valuable skill while staying relevant in the workplace.”

What have been the most inspiring and challenging aspects of the 10 week program?

“I came into this program with absolutely no previous coding experience, so most of the material I find challenges me. With that being said, I find myself waking up each morning with a desire to learn more.”

WHAT HAVE YOU LEARNED ABOUT YOURSELF SO FAR DURING THE 10 WEEK PROGRAM?

“I wouldn’t say I necessarily learned anything new about myself, but there is definitely a validation that I am still eager to learn and have a desire to push myself.”

What are your career aspirations?

“To feel like it meant something, not just working to retirement.”

What is a hobby or talent of yours others may not know about?

“My 4 year old son takes up most of my time, but I do coach youth track and enjoy cooking.”
