1. When and Why Did You Decide to Pursue This Dive At This Level? What was your inspiration and motivation?

I started learning basic HTML in 2020 and then slowly grew interest in it . Then as I started my Advanced Level I choose ICT as a main subject. By that I got to learn more about HTML and CSS.

2. How Long Did It Take For You To Accomplish This Dive At This Level From The Day You Decided To Pursue It, And Why Did It Take That Long?

Well I would say it took me 1 year to get to know it and then in like 2 years without me knowing I was amazed what I can do with all the coding. I think it took me a long time to fall in love with HTML & CSS but, after that my knowledge grew way faster with all the self-learning.

3. What Was The Hardest Part About Achieving This Particular Dive Level?

The hardest part was learning way deeper in to coding and specially the web page connectivity part. Every time when there was a test and I forget how to write some of the coding I would feel really bad because I kept forgetting.  So, the hardest part for me was remembering all the tiny details.

4. What Was The Easiest Part About Achieving This Particular Dive Level?

Learning how to improve the look of my web page using CSS was the easiest part for me because, I found it fun to do try different looks in the web site.

5. What Is Your Advice For Someone Who Is Pursuing This Dive And Level?

Do more practice!! Sometime you may think that you know how to do some part but in reality you don't know how to do it exactly right.   This is especially true as a student who gets papers where they ask students to write down the whole HTML & CSS code for a given web page.  I found myself not remembering the code exactly as it is. 

So, my advice is to practice more often. Try making your own web pages. As an example if you are an anime fan, try setting up a website for anime lovers.  

Do experiments and Have fun!

6. What Are Some Of The Best Resources You Recommend to Those Pursuing This Dive At This Level, And Why Do You Recommend Them? Please Include Relevant Weblinks, If Applicable.

7. Tell Us A Story Of One Of Your Adventures While Pursuing This Dive (At This Level).

When I learned HTML & CSS in school, teacher would give us assignment to make a website using everything we learned and I would always finish before the period end and then she would tell me to do another one.  So by the end of that lesson I made 4 websites about ANIME!!

8. What Evidence Did You Submit to Prove You Met the Requirements for This Dive and Level?

here are some webpage and their codes I made for fun.

9. Will You Be Pursuing The Next Level For This Dive? If Yes, Why? If Not, Why Not?

Yes, I'm currently learning more and more about connectivity part using PHP and I'm already in love with it.

So, I would definitely learn more in the future.
