Whitney was looking to take her life and career in a different direction and after some research, she knew tech was the place for her. Like many others, she had heard of coding bootcamps and their seemingly overnight success so she took a leap. Living in the Chicago area, she started Lambda School. However, she quickly learned all was not looking as promised. "I was in the middle of the whole course," Whitney started, "but a lot of big changes happened within it and I grew increasingly uneasy about how what I was being taught was going to do to actually get me a job. I felt like after a year and a half I didn't know anything."
