My background is actually in the arts. I currently work as an academic advisor, but I knew I wanted a change. Initially, I thought web design would be the right path, but speaking with a close friend who works in UX Design piqued my interest in coding. It felt like the perfect blend of creativity and analytical thinking, a bit like solving a giant puzzle.
Yes, it's my first time learning to code, and I started this journey with Altcademy.
While exploring options, Altcademy checked all the boxes for me. I wasn’t keen on returning to school or attempting to learn using piecemeal online resources. Altcademy offered affordability, time flexibility, and a structured curriculum.
Initially, I was a bit hesitant about reaching out for help. But later, I began messaging David, my mentor, more frequently and found his advice and guidance extremely useful. I find that the program is meeting my expectations, and I am learning a lot.
After completing the Altcademy program, I'm considering exploring job opportunities within the coding field. While UX Design does interest me, for now, I am more attracted to the coding side of tech and would love to work in this field. I am keeping my options open for now, and based on my progress with the program, I am hoping to find a job sooner rather than later.
Hanna's journey with Altcademy is currently underway, but she is already making strides and showing a strong resolve. Hanna’s previous background in the arts, coupled with her curiosity and problem-solving approach, is already proving beneficial in her coding journey. She aims to transition her career from academic advising into the tech industry, and her dedication and determination to master coding is commendable. She is looking forward to the opportunities this new path will offer.
