Scholarly Developments


I’ve been a bit apprehensive when it comes to writing this announcement.  There are some great things on the horizon for me, but I still feel as though it may be a dream.   I have been accepted into the Ada Developers Academy.  There, I said it.  Does that make it any more real to me?

In February, I submitted my application for cohort 8 of the program.  It’s a selective program, but I was optimistic.  The essays that I had written were read and reread until I was satisfied that they were perfect.  Then I got invited for the code challenge of phase II and interview in phase III.  My confidence was slowly growing.  I found that my biggest obstacle in most things was my overwhelming doubt.  By completing the challenges, teaching myself to learn, and utilizing my resources, I could accomplish almost anything.  I told a few close friends at work that being accepted into the Ada Developers Academy was a possibility and kept my plans to myself for the most part.

Finally, I got the notification that I had been accepted.  I bought the mandatory Apple Macbook and am learning to use it day by day. I’ve got to move to the other coast of the country in a month and I couldn’t be happier.
