Life is about the pursuit of happiness. If you have to spend over half of my life working, why not do something you enjoy? I had zero interest in corporate law, and yet, I was forcing myself to be interested in it in order to justify my being at law school. But I came to the realization that life wasn't about money - at least for me.
I began to reflect on what I wanted with my life. Freedom and happiness. After contemplating on a few career trajectories, I started coding with absolutely no background knowledge at the age of 29. Thankfully, I ended up enjoying very aspect of it and cannot wait to expand my knowledge.
