From Hurricane Devastation to a New Beginning

One week ago today, Hurricane Laura devastated my community in Southwest Louisiana as on of the most violent and aggressive storms to ever land on the Gulf Coast.

As I sit here today in a hotel and having evacuated from the devastation caused by Hurricane Laura to Southwest Louisiana, I see an opportunity ahead.

Instead of focusing on all that has been lost, I am focusing a goal I have long had set.

Today, I will restart my journey on becoming a software engineer.
