The largest misconception is how some of these “tech influencers” on TikTok suggest you can code and make 200k overnight by attending a bootcamp.

After a teacher discovered my physical abuse at 4 years old, I was raised a foster kid in Compton. I taught myself to code at 8 yo and later pursued a degree in CS.
I went on to become one of the 1% at Google who were Black and a software engineer. Now, I run Morgan Latimer LLC full-time to help light the way for the next generation of technologists.
