My story (part 1)
This story starts when I was 10 years old. I was on 6th Primary (I guess that's the equivalent of 4th grade on the American system) and a teacher decided to teach us HTML. I had always been interested in computers, but this was the first time I could create things). The teacher got mad at us after two days and we went back to learning Microsoft Word (for the third consecutive year), but I continued learning by myself (now that I think about it, this was the first time I learned something on my own).
I think a year passed where I didn't learn anything new. I just copied the source of websites I liked or downloaded templates and edited the content to have a nice website to show to friends. This was also the time when I got interested in "hacking" (I downloaded Kali Linux and played with it like the good script kiddie I was).
Then, one friday, I was bored. I created a Codecademy account and completed the PHP course (which has now been removed because PHP is not relevant anymore) in a day. I learned just the basics I needed to start building stuff and got to work.
