MashaAllah Brother!
Keep it up!
I am also from Pakistan. I started learning new skills in June. I learnt WordPress from Youtube and it made my interest in Web Development and I started learning Web Development by Coding. I've learnt HTML and CSS. Now I'm going further into CSS and once I'm comfortable with CSS, then I'll start JavaScript and frameworks and libraries. I also have to manage College Work that's why I am going a little bit of slow but InshaAllah I'll keep going .
May Allah Grant us Success.
My aim is to earn money to support my Parents and complete my dreams and InshaAllah I'll do it.
