"I was a junior in high school when I first met Truecoders. Back then, I couldn't find anywhere in Birmingham where I could learn to code until I met Truecoders at a workshop. I enjoyed learning from there, which led me to join the class next summer. After the class, I am now studying Software Engineering at Auburn University. I am already a step ahead of my peers and have been approached by multiple recruiters as a freshman. Truecoders has had a significant impact on my success by advancing me ahead of my peers and helped jump-start my career early. I feel more confident in my ability as a developer, and I'm able to create projects of my own that I can be proud of."
