A little on how I got to where I am today.

I discovered Discord in 2018 and regularly used the various bots on the platform. After using them consistently, I was curious about how they worked, so I asked Google. I looked at multiple JavaScript tutorials and tried to create my bot for people to use.

My first Discord bot was called "Cookie" (later renamed to Arisu), a moderator bot explicitly built for my Discord server. Next came Mimi, an experimental music bot. And finally, Atlas, a public moderation bot.

After a while, I ran out of ideas for new things to add to these bots. However, there was one thing that I couldn't get my mind off. Some popular bots had websites you could visit, allowing you to control the bot! Now THAT was cool, and I wanted it for myself.

Sooner or later, I switched my focus towards learning front-end development, and lost interest in Discord bots. After learning the basics of HTML, CSS and with my pre-existing knowledge of JavaScript, I created my first website.

However, my journey has only begun; I'm currently enrolled in a Computer Science course at Eastleigh College and I'm constantly learning new languages, frameworks and skills.
