My name is Ayesha Khan and I am a student working on my Software Engineering degree. I write about coding, makeup, and health. Check my blog out and say hi to me!
Oprah Winfrey once said, “Be thankful for what you have; you’ll end up having more. If you concentrate on what you don’t have, you will never, ever have enough.” Obviously, we’re told this when we’re younger, but we never really understand the value of this until we are much older. I used to think that I had to have straight A’s in every subject and need the new Apple computer or cell phone to create cool apps, and always complained to my parents about how we never have enough money to buy the new devices. Now I realize that I was completely wrong. As long as I have the passion and motivation to create cool websites and apps, there’s nothing stopping me. As the daughter of immigrant parents from Pakistan and an undergrad in Software Engineering, I came to realize how blessed I really am and what I’m capable of creating. This is what excites me about software development, the limitless possibilities we truly have to make anything we want as long as we have the passion. Software development allows me to create whatever I want, it also easily touches the lives of people from all around the world and this is something I will never take for granted.
Being able to code and bring a project to life is something exciting and very possible. I have proven myself wrong so many times by being able to build a working app or fix a bug that I thought would never be fixed. Thanks to the internet and devices these days, these apps can be delivered to anyone within seconds and change lives. And the ability to do this is something I will never take for granted. As Oprah mentioned to be grateful for what you have and concentrate on that. I’ll continue to keep learning and developing apps so that I can help change the world one step at a time.
