My son wants to go to school for website design. He has been messing around with building small sites in his spare time and they have all really surprised me. He is all about all things computer and has a great natural skill for it. He has not had any classes at his high school other than a typing class and a class that taught them the basics of running a computer.
It seems like he is taking me on a virtual tour of a new site that he has put together each week. The last one that he built was pretty great. It was for his online gaming crew. They get together online and play games for hours and hours. He took several screen shots from the game and put them on a site. He has also put the stats for the different players on there so they could compare what they are all doing.
This kid is really going to be great at web design after he goes to college for it. If he can self-teach himself the way that he has been, he should be able to learn from an instructor quite easily. He has some big plans for his adult life already and he is only in the tenth grade.
I can remember when I was in tenth grade. I had no idea what I wanted to do when I grew up. I could barely get from one day to another without changing my mind about what I wanted to do at that moment in time.
I really think that he is going to have a great future ahead of him. If he can accomplish as much as he has at his age, I can only imagine what he will be able to do when he is an adult.
