Hi! I'm Dawson. I'm a 16-year-old, highly motive, self-taught individual, seeking a position to utilize my programming skills, gain knowledge, and learn from others in the field. My computer interest started at age 11, when I began to research and teach myself game design. At age 13, I had the desire to build a gaming computer on my own, in which I did successfully. At age 14, I enrolled in an online AP Computer Science preparation course, resulting in receiving a qualified score on the exam. I have continued to research and teach myself programming. Being homeschooled has allowed me to learn more about my passion for computers, and given me the time and opportunities to gain more knowledge. I am confident that my current skills, along with my ability and desire to learn, would make me an excellent asset to others in the technology field.
