From Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
An Introduction to Me:
My name is Gus Richardson and I'm currently applying for entrance into the Holberton School! I'm from Philadelphia, PA but I attended college briefly in Chicago, IL, while I was in search of becoming a Software Engineer. I found that there are cheaper and more hands-on ways to do such a thing, at a lesser price than a traditional school.
Lately, I've been doing a lot of my learning on FreeCodeCamp, Codecademy, and finding free courses on Udemy to enrich the lessons from other areas. This method of self teaching has helped me a lot in terms of learning web development, but has also got me into better coding habits and consistently a desire to learn more about programming.
Why I'm Excited to Be Applying:
The Holberton School was just what I was looking for in terms of getting a great education in Software Engineering. I want to live, breathe, and sleep code and that seems like how the culture is at Holberton. I can't wait to get further in the process and hopefully I am admitted!
