Back in First School, I really didn't know what to do with my life in the future. Back then it didn't really matter. When I was younger, I actually though I wanted to be a Police Officer as I loved Administrating and Organising something.
In Middle School, My favourite subject quickly became IT. In IT lessons, I used to finish a good 20 minutes before everybody else and was routinely asked by the teacher to go around and help others. This made me feel great. At the end of Middle School people were given awards. I was given the Achievement Award for ICT. I will never forget that day I stood there, that's when I knew I wanted to do something in IT.
When I hit High School, I chose to do the most IT I could, choosing to do ICT CIDA and ICT DIDA courses (which took up a lot of time). This gave me a chance to try all areas of IT thoroughly so I could then choose what area to specialise in.
Near the end of my high school time, I knew I wanted to go into Web. I didn't particularly like the art of design but I loved learning how it all worked. I then chose to stay on at the same high school and do two years of sixth form. I felt I hadn't quite finished with High School yet.
At Sixth Form, The school made me a head technician, this meant I could train others in the art I already knew. A lot of people came to me for advice about computers and in my final year I was made a Moderator of the Frog VLE System my school used and I was put in charge of Sixth Form's own private IT room. This made me feel as if what I was doing was actually a really good thing. Then, when the time came for choosing what to do next in life (e.g. Apprenticeship, Job, University, College etc.) I chose to apply to University. This was a bold step for me as most of my family have never been to University but I felt I wanted a degree so I could show the world that I was good in the Web area.
I eventually chose to do BSc(Hons) Web Programming at Staffordshire University in Stafford for a 4 year course (with 1 year placement in the web industry).
