How time flies when you're having fun... I can hardly believe it's already February! New Years came and gone... and soon it will be Valentine's Day. Two of my boys have birthdays this month as well. Celebration are always great to look forward to. They take our mind off the daily grind.
College has been such an enjoyable time of learning. It was MUCH better than my high school experience. But all good things come to an end. I have a little over a month left then I will be going on my internship. I'm looking forward to learning how to be more business minded in my internship. Working to satisfy customers with real life projects will be an opportunity to show my skills and gain hands-on experience. I'm getting excited about finding a great job doing something I love.
I'm still hard at work getting prepared for my freelance business. I've been working on the Pure Canadian Design website. I am hoping to launch it within the next week. Revamping my projects and gallery areas has been a challenge but will be worth it to show some of my development work as well as my graphic design.
Another project I am working on is a Meet-up Group for Code Newbies starting at the end of March. Things seem to be coming together for this as well. There are so many opportunities for tech related work. I want to encourage people to reach for the sky and accomplish their dreams no matter what level of coding they are at.
I would love to organize events to help inspire more women and kids to learn to code too. This will be another project in my near future.
For now, I will go one day at a time...enjoy my time at school and with my family. As long as I'm making steady progress on my projects I know I'm moving in the right direction. I'll be ready when the right opportunities come my way.
Welcome to Wendy's Pure Canadian Design Blog
Hello and welcome,
My name is Wendy. I am a single mom of 4 (ages 8, 20, 23, and 26). I am a cat lover and owner of three rescued cats (ages 1, 5 and 11).
Do you have a dream job? I found my niche in Web design. I create websites to sell your products and services. Also, I love creating enhanced photos from pictures I take. The ragdoll cat in the background is one of my favourites that I enhanced.
In July 2016, I completed the Enterprise Web and Mobile Development program at triOS College and an internship with Stiller ADT as a Web Developer. (Sept 2014 - July 2016)
Currently I work from home as a freelance web and graphic designer for my business "Pure Canadian Design". I specialize in creating customized, WordPress e-Commerce websites for small and home-based businesses.
