With that being said, I couldn’t have gotten this internship opportunity without Hacker Fellows, and for that I will be forever grateful. The whole Hacker Fellows experience has exceeded my expectations, from the first week of the bootcamp up until now.
If there’s anything to bear in mind as you approach the world and perceive others, it’s to remember that you can do both! You can do things that are seemingly at odds with your identity and have a multiplicity of valuable skills. Someday, I hope that this incongruence will be celebrated...but until then let's shotgun some Tecates and talk about non-deterministic polynomial-time hardness!
This opportunity that I’ve gotten through Hacker Fellows led me to change my opinions about the startup culture in Michigan. I’ve met some great people and I’m working at a great company. I’m looking forward to the next couple of months and am excited for the opportunities that I will have.
Though I game occasionally, I’m not a huge gamer so I started to look at the other small, but active communities on there and found the Programming group. I’ve always been someone that likes to listen to tech talks while also working/programming (I know, nerd alert) so I decided to give it a chance and oh boy, was it rough.
