How did you become a Web designer?

well my sophmore year in High School I took 2 web design classes along with Programing. The first class was Frontpage and the second was Dreamweaver. After those our schools volleyball coach came up to me and asked me if i wanted to create a site for the team. I said sure: www.danvillevolleyball.com

Later our BPA advisor asked if i wanted to be an officer for BPA(Business Professionals of America) and make a site for BPA. once again I said yes: www.danvillebpa.com

Are you self-taught or did you get a degree?

I dont have a degree yet, i plan to get a degree in Computer Science, Other than those 2 classes im self-taught. I don't know what career I want to go into, all i know is Computers.
