Timeline of My Journey
1.5 YRS OLD
I was already showing an interest in tech, so my parents let me use the family Gateway desktop to "play" games like Tetris, and I learned how to use a mouse and keyboard.
4 YRS OLD
I started using Microsoft Paint to design cards for my family, and then I learned to combine designs from Paint with Publisher and Powerpoint to create more dynamic pictures (shoutout to the Microsoft clip art gallery).
7 YRS OLD
For Christmas my parents surprised me with my first laptop (that didn't connect to wifi). My mom put it a white box and made fake labels to disguise it as training wheels lol.
8 YRS OLD
My brother helped me download Photoshop CS3, and he started teaching me the basics. My first "job" was to remove the background from a picture of a robot, and I nailed it.
9 YRS OLD
I built my first website in Wix and created a fashion blog with a forum for my classmates to vote for the best outfits. Kids would log in and comment to cast their votes. It was called "Passion 4 Fashion".
13 YRS OLD
I taught myself HTML and CSS to customize my Tumblr, and then I started building full sites in Dreamweaver and WordPress.
15 YRS OLD
After a couple of years using WordPress, I decided to go back to using Wix. I tried Squarespace later, but I really enjoyed the flexibility and features Wix had to offer.
18 YRS OLD
As a Sophomore in college, I was working to build my network and began freelancing as a graphic designer. I met with a lot of agencies when looking for an internship, but I didn't fall in love with any of them.
20 YRS OLD
I decided to launch my own agency to have more control over the projects I took on, which also gave me space to prioritize my mental health as a caregiver. Two months later, the world shut down!
21 YRS OLD
Despite the pandemic, I graduated from ODU with 2 Bachelor's degrees and a team of 6! Since then, we've worked with clients all over the country!
