Our class is entering our 6th week at Perpetual Education and it has been a rollercoaster of emotions, personally. The course work itself has been doable, the concepts we are learning have been enlightening and exciting, my fellow students are all helpful, enthusiastic, and overall a joy to work with.
I’ve even been able to build two websites and put them on a server:
The rollercoaster of emotions I referred to earlier is not really tied in with the course and its work but just how I am viewing myself at this particular time. Becoming a web developer is something I truly want to be. I spent the last year before this mentorship trying to teach myself how to code by watching tutorial after tutorial and at several times I felt I would never be able to become a one. I did not know what languages to learn, if I was learning the right things and concepts, how to contact people for help, and just felt lost and alone.
My confidence was at such a low and I thought about giving up before discovering Perpetual Education. Because of this mentorship, my mentor Derek, and all the students at PE, I’ve been able to feel hopeful about my career and future for the first time in years. The only problem is that I am not exactly allowing myself to feel accomplished and keep thinking I am doing something wrong.
But I am slowly starting to allow myself to be happy with success no matter how big or small they may be. I am beginning to see the daily victories in learning something new, something I did not know a day prior. I am going to keep doing my best, keep making mistakes, keep asking questions, keep talking to Derek and my fellow classmates, keep writing about it, and I will get through this mentorship and I WILL become a web developer.
