Hello! I'm a software engineer at a startup in San Diego. I graduated from Cal State San Marcos in 2012 with a B.S. in math. I began my career as a data analyst and soon moved to the engineering team. Since then I've had the chance to learn and grow as a full stack engineer. I've worked mostly with Python and Ruby, but have also done a lot of independent work in Objective C, and published my own iOS app in 2016 called Sproutily. I love engineering and am always looking for new technologies and ways to grow!

    Hello, I jsut finished my second year degree in electronics engineering. The sad thing is, I am confused wether I am really into this. I used to like doing electronics but now I am losing my passion. This happened after my first year. I failed my exams drastically during 2nd year first semester, and struggled in 2nd semester.

    Hey there, this sounds like a tough situation. When you say you can't drop out, does that mean you also can not switch your major?  If you can't switch your major, is minoring in something a bit more social an option, that way you can have some backup?  ...
