Hi everybody ๐Ÿ‘‹๐Ÿฝ

My name is Asha (pronounced like Asia but the โ€œshhโ€ sound) and I am currently a grad student in Media Design switching from a career in mental health counseling. Itโ€™s been pretty freeing and people have been very welcoming in the tech community, but with my only knowing HTML and CSS, itโ€™s been really hard for me to do any projects outside of tutorials like freeCodeCamp or The Odin Project. I recently started the 100 Days of Code and didnโ€™t make it through the first week because I didnโ€™t know how to do much and the projects I looked up were beyond my skills. So! Iโ€™ve decided to join more communities, make new friends and get messy! I plan to use this site to help find projects, stay connected and give myself time to at least learn JavaScript before I restart my code challenge. I look forward to talking with you all!
