I didn’t exactly know what was hack the hood was at first, Kennedy’s ITA director; Peggy, had pulled me out of class and had told me she had a job internship training that she had for me. She described i was going to get paid to get training on coding and programing. The name of it and the description caught my attention right away so i signed in. I was so excited i was getting offered this training because I always liked the idea of working with technology as a career in the future. So I knew that if i joined Hack The Hood I would build up skills on coding and programing, which I can use and bring up later on in the future.
Why not give it a shot? My two biggest career options is being a Mechanical Engineer or Tech Engineer. Working with car’s engines was always fun to me and seeing technology advance is extraordinary to me, and I would be glad to improve it more.
I come from a family where no one has gone to college or at least graduated High School. My mother has always encouraged me to go to college and get a career, I know that will make her really proud of me and she doesn’t want it for her to feel good, she wants it to be for me. She doesn’t want to see me struggle with money like our family does. She is my motivation.
That’s why i thought joining Hack The Hood was going to be worth it because in here, I will build up the right skills I need to help me further my Education.
