My passion is coding.
I found my passion for coding while working with my dad. My father, who works in a scaffolding business, had been given the option to do some overtime work at Google. He asked me if I would like to help out and I instantly agreed. Upon arrival we waited for a manager, while waiting I observed the work environment of the employees. I instantly fell in love. I listened and looked closer to what the majority of the employees did. I had found out the employees there mostly where coding. The next morning upon awakening, I thought to myself, in the future, I want job with a work environment just like that. Coding is what I needed to learn in order to land a similar job in the future. Later that day I signed up for a free online coding class, and got hooked.The thought of learning how to code one of most used technology thrilled me.
Nelson is a great candidate for the Science Learning Institute STEM Summer Camps because he has taken the initiative to learn some basic coding languages. Therefore he is ready to be in a professional learning environment where more coding skills are taught & explained to him. Plus, he is very able to collaborate with others which will be an asset when it comes to working with others in the coding classes.
I'm exited to say I was accepted into the STEM Summer camp program. Thank you to all who have donated, I honestly can't remember when I was this excited for the summer. I'm really looking forward to learning from those experienced in the field of study I'm aiming to pursue. I have chosen this program to help further my knowledge of computer coding, as well as to help prepare me for the long road of coding I have up ahead of me. I'm really grateful for being given for this opportunity. Thanks for the knowledge I'm soon to learn, and thanks for the future memories.
