Prior to lambda I was on a mission to figure out who I was career wise. I self taught everything I knew. And at the time I knew HTML, CSS, and I'm thinking. If I could find somebody to hold my hand, see what I can do and put me in touch with their network of people.
Then perhaps I might stand a chance. I kind of treated Lambda like a job. I had to fool myself into thinking, look, if this was a paying job. Would I be so quick to just give up? Or because I'm getting a paycheck, I know myself, I would figure this out one way or another if it kills me. And that's that's, that was my perspective on it.
Cause I've been doing computers since I was 17. I didn't think it would amount to a career. A good paying one at that. And that's essentially what happened. I succeeded making a career out of a hobby that I've had since I was 17.
I was just really grateful that they had believed in me and they're teaching me and investing in me. I honestly thought this was handed down, this came straight from heaven. Honest. This changed my whole life.
I can't tell you how good it feels that I can finally, I'm sorry. That I can finally take care of myself and my son. It's just, I can't. I can't tell you how great that feels.
