Career Change: How I Fell in Love with JavaScript and React

The Challenge

After completing my studies in data analytics, I was eager to dive into the field. I spent countless hours learning and mastering various tools and techniques, even creating a website to share my insights through blog posts. Despite all my efforts, I faced a tough reality: job opportunities for data analysts were limited, and I struggled to land a position.

Discovering JavaScript

Determined not to give up, I started exploring other areas of tech. This led me to JavaScript, the language that powers the web. As I started learning JavaScript, I quickly realized how much I enjoyed it. Creating interactive and dynamic web pages was fascinating, and I found myself spending more and more time coding.

Falling in Love with React

With a solid foundation in JavaScript, I took the next step and began learning React, a powerful library for building user interfaces. The journey was challenging but incredibly rewarding. Each day brought new learning experiences, and I was thrilled by the possibilities that React opened up for me.
