Despite pursuing a degree in Economics, Takieddine left before completing his third year to explore freelancing. "I lived my life to the fullest, trying and exploring many things," he says. Amidst his diverse pursuits, was Takieddine’s passion for writing poetry. "I've always loved turning anything into a rhythmic poem," he shares. 

Discovering Re:Coded

Takieddine’s life took a pivotal turn when he discovered Re:Coded while scrolling through Facebook.

"It was pure luck. I was just browsing Facebook, and there it was—an opportunity I felt compelled to seize," he recalls.

Despite his lack of a tech background and the program being free, he decided to apply, not expecting much.

The moment he was selected from among 3,000 applicants was exhilarating for both him and his family. "Most of the things were 'wow' for me," he admits, recalling the new experiences and knowledge he gained.

From Novice to Software Engineer

Takieddine embraced the challenges and opportunities at Re:Coded with enthusiasm. "The journey was transformative. I went from having no tech background to securing a tech job in less than a year. That's truly impactful," he says.

His dedication and hard work paid off when he landed a job as a Software Engineer at Hilal Software Corp.

"Working at Hilal Software Corp is a dream come true. I'm constantly learning and growing in an ever-evolving industry," he shares.

His current goal is to continue gaining experience and staying at the cutting edge of the tech world.

Takieddine aspires to make a significant impact in the world through his work.

"I want to do something behind the scenes that everyone will talk about, yet they wouldn't know who did it," he reveals.

His story is a testament to the power of luck and perseverance. It demonstrates how a supportive community and a willingness to embrace new opportunities can turn dreams into reality, regardless of where one starts.
