Two years ago, I was knee-deep in law books, navigating the intricacies of legal jargon as I prepared to embark on my career as a lawyer concluding my final year. But then, like a wizard wielding a wand, I underwent a transformation that saw me trading in my legal briefs for lines of code.

Its no secret that I have never been content with Law. Law was a mundane chore to me, I wanted something different, something interesting. I wanted to wield Gods mind, create my own universe, perform miracles, you know, and tech felt like the closest to accomplishing that. So, I embarked on it.

With enthusiasm, passion, and my heart on my sleeves, I decided to dive into the world of tech. My transition began with a software engineering program at the Bayelsa State tech hub, after which I continued with YouTube tutorials.

Transitioning wasnt easy, I had anxiety about a companion, suffered imposter syndrome, and gave up countless times. But here I am today, proficient in front-end, a technical writer, and now navigating back-end. I did not get here on my own, mind you, every milestone I hit was because of the people around me willing to help Diseyi, Favour, and Eteims.

Throughout this journey, I've learnt some valuable lessons: consistency is key, embrace the enigma, ask for help, give up but get back up, and youre not the first idiot.

Stay enchanted and keep believing in your own magic,

Ladou
