Why Software Engineering?

My name is Nakai Hamlin, and I’m 19 years old. I graduated High School on May 26, 2020, and just about a week ago, on February 22, 2020, I proceeded to take my very first steps into what is going to become my lifelong career: Software Engineering. I’m currently studying at Flatiron School; a coding Bootcamp. The journey seems daunting and scary at first, but the more I learn and code with my two hands, the more I can see the light at the end of the tunnel.

I was always interested in coding ever since I was little. Granted, I was more interested in Game Development coding, but as time went on and I got older, I started to realize that Software Engineering was for me. I have a small background in coding websites since I’ve completed my technical coding pathway in High School from my Freshman to my Senior years. Over those years, I’ve grown and learned to love Web Development. Solving problems while working creatively? Sign me up!

I am excited to learn more at this wonderful opportunity I got at Flatiron, and I’m praying and hoping that it becomes easier for me as I go and hoping it all goes well!
