I always thought I could be comfortable working in an administrative assistant role with my destination written in stone. My position came with many benefits and work that could be grasped quickly, no matter the changes in the environment. While I was grateful for what I had, I wanted so much more. I knew my potential went far beyond where I currently was or was going to be if I continued in that field. My yearning for a more challenging and fulfilling role grew stronger every day. I quickly became tired of being comfortable.
I had an epiphany the instant I started talking to individuals in the technology field. Technology is a field that is always growing, always changing, and continuously developing towards something greater. I took the opportunity to jump into something new, and I'm so happy I did. Software development calls to my passions of creativity and sense of community.
