Anyone that I know that visits my site knows what a long road it was for me to get here. I started off ready to take on the world and was fine until I lost my grandmother. Many of you may not realize what a rock she was to me. She was there when I left the house, she was there when I came home...she was just there. When she died she took away that rock, that stability that she provided for me. She gave me confidence that nobody else has ever given me and I miss her every day and I always will.
Well, life went on and I had to gain all that convidence back and today I sit here more confident then I have ever been. It took alot of people to get me here and it took alot of courage to go on. Until I received my internship with The Stamford Police Department I felt that I could do nothing but Algebra and proper grammer, but then my eyes opened wider and let me see that everything is not always what it appears to be on the outside. I had learned something. I had learned more code then I previously knew when I had begun at Gibbs College and I could actually put a website together that was functional and appealing to the eye. (Yes, I do realize that this was the point in going to college in the first place.)
My friends in school and out of school have been wonderful. Amanda, Mia, Dave, Roxy, Kara and Pete were all there for me whether it was to listen to me complain or to just have a good time and to get my mind off of all that I had to do for school when I was just on complete overload. I would not have made it without you guys and I thank you all from the bottom of my heart.
Then there is Eric. He gets his own paragraph because without him and his friends their would be no DUNZO therefore there would be no site. So, thanks Eric and I am happy that the site is E-rawk approved.
When I was at school, I met some wonderful people. People that made me want to get up in the morning and go to school everyday. Steven, Christopher, Danny, George, Ludy, Diana and Emily. I am sure there are more that I am not mentioning but you each made a place in my heart that will forever be etched in my thoughts and memories for the rest of my life.
As for the teachers at Gibbs, most of them stand out in my mind and each in their own right has done something to advance me in my learning processes, but none as much as Judy Levin, Jessamin Swearingen and Robert Khoury. Each of them are great teachers in their own right, but they also cared about me as an individual helped me in more ways then I could ever show enough gratitude for. They have became my inspirations, my mentors and my friends. Without them I would not have come this far and for that I am forever indebted to them.
I just hope that I didn't forget anyone. Don't be offened if I didn't, it definantly wasn't purposeful. So, if your name wasn't mentioned, I'm sorry, but thank you a million times also.
