Born and raised in Virginia, I am a graduate of George Mason University with a Bachelor's of Science in Public Health. Having worked in a variety of fields, from butcher's assistant to specimen management technician, I am now pursuing a career in web development. Having always had a passion for building plastic model kits as a child and as an adult, web design was a perfect fit for my tendencies of fiddling and fitting various pieces together. After hearing about the GWU Bootcamp from a coworker, I decided to take the leap of faith. Having completed the first week of classes, I am really enjoying the program and really proud the progress that I have been making having had no prior experience with web development other than very fleeting lessons throughout gradeschool.
The correlation between web design and my hobbies has been eye opening. I have always had an interest in computers, but my interest had been surface level in regard to the topic of web-surfing and computer games. My father has always been technologically savy and wished to impart onto me the knowledge of building a computer. I built my current desktop as a freshman in college and have been upgrading it incrementally throughout the years. As a child I have always enjoyed fiddling with Legos, plastic model kits, and sculpting. Web design takes these interests of mine and gives me the freedom to create from start to finish in a way that I find very engaging and satisfying. As a fledgling web developer, I hope to gain all the experience and absorb all the information within the GWU Bootcamp and becoming both competant and proactive in learning and developing.
