How it all started

When I was 9, I was (and still am), fascinated with video games. They captured my attention, was like a movie, yet I was in control of what happened. I liked the excitement, the reward of accomplishment, and the ability to play online with friends. I had always thought how cool creating those games would be, so I decided to try and make some. I talked to my dad about this, and he found a simple program for me to create my own games. Named Alice, it allowed me to create my own games, but with training wheels. It had drag and drop code, and everything was explained to me. My dad bought me a book about coding in Alice, and for 2 years, I built a foundation for my programming with creating games in Alice.
