1. How and why did you get started with coding?
3. What were your goals when starting to code and how did you keep motivated? 4. What was the most challenging part of learning how to code, and how did you rise above those challenges? 5. Which resources would you recommend to folks just starting out? 6. How did you start creating your own projects? 7. What advice would you have for folks who are just starting out or thinking of getting started? 8. How did you get to where you are now? What did you do after Codecademy? 9.

(if applicable) How did you feel about switching your career, and what can you say to others who want to make such a change?
Anything else you want to add? We're especially excited about inspiring women who may not think they can do it to start coding! What can you say to women who might be interested that would help them get started?
So excited to get you on our stories page! Folks are always asking about what to do after Codecademy, and how to stay motivated.

My name is Afam, a Mauritian based Nigerian. I found out about this great site last June and i have been learning Python ever since. I knew some coding in Java,HTML/CSS, ASP.Net, C,SQL before now but would love to use this most interactive platform to refresh and improve on all my IT skills. Great way to go guys. Willing to help newbies as well as have strong hands to help me too. Already in touch with a great Brazilian wizz kid. Hope to conclude Python before end of this week. Thanks CODE ACADEMY!!!
