I continued to code in 2019 because I have found an amazing community through Women Who Code that constantly motivates me to learn more and share my time and experience with the group.
I deserve credit for becoming a developer in under a year without going to a bootcamp or getting a CS degree. It's been a lot of work, and it will always be more work learning, but it has been worth it.
I hope to see my developer/tech community continue to work to be better and more inclusive to developers all over the world! You can do it. :)
