I left my job at Apple retail at the start of the year to start learning how to build the technology I was offering support for.

After considering university pathways, instead of signing up for another 2+ years in a MS program, I found I could go straight to the point with my own determination and the beautiful world of online learning.

As of now, I’m about seven-months into My Self-Created AI Master’s Degree.

Two-weeks into starting one of the courses, I emailed one of the support team members asking for the refund procedure. I thought I was out of my depth. I had been learning Python for three-weeks and was about to start a course on Deep Learning.

Choosing not to go through with the refund was the best decision I could’ve made.

I’m not special. I chose to follow my own path. You can too.

Thank you, Preethi, for your continued words and messages of inspiration.
