How It All Started…
Breaking The Barrier
It all started after high school when I decided to take a break to find myself, and for the next four years, I worked in a restaurant while figuring out my next steps.
Eventually, I realized that if I wanted to succeed in life, I need to get back on track.
I quickly enrolled back into a University, but my four-year hiatus left me in a very difficult position playing catch up.
Despite the challenge, I persevered and graduated with a statistics background.
As a fresh Grad, I found entry-level work in the banking sector, but it was not enough as my Undergraduate skills were not being valued.
Determined to advance my statistical knowledge with the goal to find better opportunities, I decided to go back to University for graduate school while working full-time.
Life As A Self-Taught Programmer
After completing my second degree, I started self-learning programming by spending countless hours networking, studying, and working on projects, all while continuing to juggle my full-time banking job.
Life has an interesting way of recognizing hard work and dedication.
I became a panelist at a local tech company where I showcased a Predictive Engine project that I was working on at the time, and that caught the attention of the community.
One thing led to another, I unexpectedly received a teaching invitation at my University where I began teaching programming to Students from my University department.
From that point on, I continued to sharpen my skills and expertise, which helped me land various roles in Data Analytics, Data Science, Data Engineering, and Cloud Architect.
The Journey To Success
I am thrilled to share my story where I overcame many obstacles and challenges to achieve my goals.
My resilience, hard work, and determination helped me refuse to give up on my dreams and aspirations.
My journey is a testament that anyone can be self-taught a new skill when they are ready to take on new challenges and succeed.
I want to share my experiences and help you get to your goals.
