So I went to FAU for like a year and a half. And then it got like, really expensive. And I moved back home. While I was back home, I got a job, I was just like a food runner. And then I happen to like be scrolling through Instagram one day and saw like an advertisement for Lambda School. So I applied there and I got in and that was back in November.

Since November, just been doing Lambda School full time. And back in July, I graduated and then I started applying for jobs. And I applied to the Twitter apprenticeship. And I did my phone interview, did my on site interview, and then I got it.

Just going through like this past year, I've just found like a lot more purpose and to like not have that traditional background and be able to, like get an apprenticeship with Twitter. And like, have such an increase in my pay, like oh my gosh, like what a big increase it is. And like for me to actually feel like now like okay, I'm set. And I know like now like sky's the limit and I know I'm gonna like learn so much at Twitter like and be able to like, do like so much more like that is I guess like what excites me and like everyone else like in my family.
