Is 9 a good age to start programming

I am 13 I already finished HTML, CSS, Bootstrap, and Java script. I started programming at 9(because my mom made me to) and I hated it, it was like learning Chinese to me. I stopped for 1 1/2 years then when I was 11 at the end of the year my mom told me that u are not going to write any code just watch videos. I accepted and she brought me to a website called Tuts +, I used to watch the guy code websites, portfolios, and many other stuff. After like half a year I felt way more comfortable with coding, I decided to give it a shot again. At that time the only website I knew about was at khan academy,( I guess after a few months I got brave enough to try again) and I found it wasn’t too hard and scary. After a couple months I realized that all of my hard work wasn’t going to count in my education, and I asked my mom if thee was any other websites that have a certificate or any form of recognition, and after a but of research she found out about free code camp, and I discovered it was a million times better than khan academy, because of the step by step challenges and the forum. I then became dedicated to free code camp trying to do at least 2 hours a day I wish I could do more, but with homework and other stuff it just wasn’t possible.r. I wrote all of this as an inspiration for all of you guys out there who are feeling enveloped and overcome by all of this programming stuff. And for all of the older guys who are feeling discouraged by their age I know someone who was 62 when he started and now he works at a major gaming company my point here is that it is never too late or too early to learn.
