I start a new job as a Software engineer at Ticketmaster today. It may not mean much to you, but it means a lot to me because of what it took to get here:

It took trying to launch two tech companies & failing back in the early 2010’s.

It took going to @HackForLA in 2014 with zero knowledge of code and pairing with the awesome @machikoyasuda(I found the data and she built the app) to build Map My Snaps and winning 4th place.

It took signing up for General Assembly’s coding bootcamp, which @machikoyasuda recommended at the time. Borrowing 2k from my aunt & crowdfunding my tuition to get in since I couldn’t get a loan because my family members damaged my credit score.
