Recently it was my first year at Platzi and I want to share with you how my story has been these past 3 years in Colombia, how I joined Platzi and of course how I reinvented myself.
I love memes and the team made me this one, I love it ❤️
When I was in vzla I foresaw that things were going to be hard and if I wanted to be stable I needed to leave my country so I chose Colombia and some time later I decide to move to Bogota.
My first months were hard because I had no visa or any papers apart from my passport but my luck changed when the government launched a special permission for working so I took it in order get my first job as a hardware technician, however, I was unhappy because I always wanted to do something greater.
That was when I found Platzi and the way I could change my life; If I specialised as a frontend developer even without knowing anything about programming.
I overworked and learned about 8 hours per day to achieve it, but things got harder when I decided to quit my job.
I knew that I had to do it if I wanted to reunite my whole family including my dogs. So I work even harder and I started to come to the Platzi Meetups.
Some of the people in the picture work with me at Platzi now 😃
I also became a member of the Facebook Developer Group
And some time later, people at Platzi recognized me as an active member of the community and invited me to work with them, as I always planned hehe ❤️
This is the story that you all know about me at Platzi and my happiest day was when I was able to see my dogs again, after 3 years without them.
My favorite quote and the main message in my story is:
Fake it until you make it
