A Little Bit of Background
In 2017, I graduated with a PhD in history from The George Washington University, where I studied German colonialism in Africa. After graduation, I ended up teaching at a private secondary school part-time to get my foot in the door. Some days were enjoyable, some days were painful, and I never fully adjusted to life in the classroom at that level. With no opportunity to transition to full-time in my near future, and the little joy I was getting out of the hard work I was putting into my lessons, I realized that I needed to make a change. I weighed my options, and ultimately landed on the most off the wall route in comparison to where I was starting from, and that was to pursue a web development career.
