Shelly the turtle - so quiet and shy. Always perceived as subpar and below average. In this quarantine, she did everything possible under the sun. She wanted something new, something that would keep her mind buzzing for hours but also excited. That’s when it hit her, she wanted to learn how to code.

She was mocked for aiming for something so out of reach and was told to give up. The words scarred Shelly, it made her want to hide in her shell. However, she decided it was time to prove them wrong. She worked nonstop and though she might’ve been the slowest among all, the passion was an everlasting flame inside of her. Even with her small steps, she started to surpass all the people - the ones who gave up, the ones that got lazy, demotivated, everyone. She knew she reached her goal when she looked up and saw nobody else above her. She had done it.

Our mascot, Shelly the turtle, shows that anyone can do anything. It may take time, your progress may be slow but any progress is successful progress. Get out of your comfort zone – your shell, surprise everyone, and most importantly - yourself.

Don’t forget, slow and steady wins the race.
