Welcome to my Portfolio

I'm Michelle


As someone who has 8+ years of experience in the Hospitality industry, I've had many various service-based roles. I wanted a change in my life, so I decided to retake the Myers-Briggs personality test to see what types of roles I could be suitable for. One that caught my eye was Web Development / Software Engineering. I never knew the two could be so similar.

Well, not that similar, really. At first, I jumped right in. I joined an intense 24-week Bootcamp, and as embarrassing as this is to say, I had no idea what I was getting myself into. HTML, CSS, great, fantastic I thought, I can do this! Then we got to JavaScript and I thought what (in the console.log('hello world')) is going on!? At the beginning of 2021, I no longer continued on that course. From there, I started self-teaching through Free Code Camp, Udemy, playing games like Grid Attack or solving kata on CodeWars, using any and every cheap/free resource I could find to practice and learn, especially in JavaScript, until in 2022, I was accepted as a Trainee in CodeYourFuture, in March 2023 I graduated with a certification in Full Stack Web Development, and in April 2023 I accepted my first contract position as a Software Developer.

I'm grateful that I didn't stop and I am grateful for the community I found through CodeYourFuture. Because now, two years later, I've rediscovered myself in the best of ways. I've learned how much I enjoy learning new things. I've learned how passionate I am about solving problems and helping others solve problems. I've gotten to know how great it is to be part of a development team, building solutions toward greater goals. I've rediscovered a fire, a drive, a vibrancy, but most importantly, I discovered a new and incredibly gratifying way to express my creativity; through service, solutions, and syntax.
