I think this begs the question on almost everyone's minds, the fundamental question 'why'. What motivated the change. I also have a ton of respect for people who went an entire major in law, as one of my college teachers once told me, "Lawyers and Programmers have one thing in common, both need to have a good grasp on logic to use it well"

Hey Juan,

haha, as expected I always get that question. My hobby was just playing around with computers and learning how they work - before I knew it, I fell in love with the great community that prevalent, and as I learned more - it just hit the right notes and here I am 😃.

Well, I guess the logic I learnt in law school is coming in handy. Now just got to find my first job in this field.

Like you I also played with computers back in the day and was fascinated by them so naturally, I ended up studying that. But you're right in that the community has become increasingly aware of the need for inclusion and being more welcoming to others.

Much success in your journey you have more to bring to the table than just "knowledge of code". :D
