Who am I?


Welcome to my website, where I share my personal journey of learning to code. As a high school student, I discovered my love for creating websites with HTML and CSS. However, as I approached university, I didn’t feel confident pursuing a career in computer science due to the stereotypes surrounding the industry. After completing my Bachelor’s degree in Psychology in the University of Puerto Rico (Ponce), I took a leap of faith and moved to the Netherlands to start a new life with my partner. It was a significant change, but I found my footing in the hotel industry and spent 8 years working in various roles.

However, after being laid off due to COVID-19, I saw it as an opportunity to finally pursue my passion for programming. Thanks to the compensation package, I enrolled in programming courses and never looked back. Learning to code has become more than just a hobby; it has become a lifelong pursuit that I find incredibly fulfilling. As an immigrant, I know firsthand the challenges of starting over in a new country and finding your place in a new industry. That’s why I created this website to share my journey and inspire others who may be hesitant to pursue their passions due to societal stereotypes or personal fears. Join me as I share my experiences and insights into the world of programming.

I keep myself busy between my job as second line support, coding and reading during spare time, and taking care of my little family of 2 beautiful kids and my partner.
