It was about two years ago that I got laid off. It was a tough pill to swallow because I worked my butt off. I had to regroup, after a lot of soul searching I jumped head first into the world of design. It was a completely unknown idea at the time but I've always enjoyed sketching, drawing and art so why not try doing something that I love for a living. I learned everything on my own, from watching countless hours of videos on tutsplus, doing projects on own, building my portfolio up to actually getting a paid freelance gig. My passion for design was the source of my drive. When I find myself up at night voluntarily watching videos and practicing, I knew then it was the right decision. God then had a hand on me finding out about General Assembly's UX program. It was a life changing experience in a lot of ways and after a lot of hard work I am happy to say this marks the first step of my new UX Design career.
I couldn't have done it without the support of my wife. Thank you for believing in me. To my friends that supported me through this process, thank you!
