Due to Covid-19 and having Type 1 Diabetes, I was shielding from March until July. To keep myself busy I completed the
Zero to Mastery Web Development course on udemy. I heard about Hacktoberfest and wanted to put my new found skills to the test. It was a lot of fun, however, it wasn't without it's frustrations either.
I am brand new to open source and found the whole GitHub experience a little daunting at first, however, the more I practiced the easier it became.
Before Hacktoberfest and the udemy course, I had dabbled a little in HTML and CSS. I think combining
Web Design with
Development is where my passion truly lies.
I am overjoyed to report that I completed the Hacktoberfest 2020 challenge and successfully submitted four pull requests on GitHub.
I only have three words for anyone who is thinking of undertaking the challenge next year: DON'T. GIVE. UP.

I learned a lot undertaking this challenge and I'm up for tackling next year's challenge as well. I think I'll try and push myself a little harder next time.
