Hi, my name is Niall, I’m 20 years old and my passion is coding. I’m originally from Australia but have moved to England a few years ago. I’ve been through a lot with my chronic fatigue which you can find more on below.
My Chronic Fatigue Journey
I have had chronic fatigue for in total about 4 years and I am currently at school because of the years that I have missed. The illness has taught me to be patient but also be grateful for the things I do have and the perseverance that will get me through just about anything. Whilst I had chronic fatigue I lost connection with not just my education but also my social life and i started seeing less and less of friends as it was just too hard for me to go out or even talk with them.
When I was in the middle of the illness, I picked up a passion for coding. The way this came about is through the popular game called Minecraft. I firstly started using the circuitry mechanic in the game which explored the logic of signals and also in fact logic gates which helped me make complex contraptions. I then wanted to share my contraptions with others which I then did with starting my own YouTube channel. I was fairly consistent with my uploads to the YouTube channel and worked well with the schedule, however, I then had other commitments starting to enter my life like school and that didn’t leave me much time for my YouTube channel but still leaving me satisfied with how far I got with it.
