After months of grueling study and hard work, I've made it guys. Today I signed my offer letter for a new job with Community Brands as a Software Engineer.

I can't even explain how happy I am right now. This is my dream come true.

There were times where I had doubted my ability, thought about giving up.

I never did. I kept pushing through.

Now I have a wonderful future ahead of me and I am so excited to get out there and build some amazing software.

Ben! I feel writing and reading on Dev has made me a better programmer everyday. This is place is probably my favorite outlet to share and learn about software development. Instrumental in me getting as far as I have.

So, thanks!
