My time at Fullstack Academy helped me to gain a more solid base of cybersecurity and helped me break into an industry that I know I will thrive in. It has been a long journey for me, but to be at a job where I know that I am going to be happy going to every day and working on moving up, it’s the absolute best, and I couldn’t be happier.

My time at Fullstack Academy was a blend of exciting triumphs and tough trials. A standout moment was the final project week before the group projects, a high-intensity stretch where I put all my learning into action. Throughout this journey, my wife's unwavering support – recognizing my dedication to the program – and the camaraderie with fellow learners played an integral role in my achievements. After graduation, I embarked on an exciting path and landed a key role in a startup, Text2Order, as well as a position at Multiverse as a Software Engineering Coach.
