I have finally at long last achieved my OSCP certification on my 1st attempt!
I went through so many ups and downs, so many struggles and battled failure many times to get where I am now, I built up a lot of confidence, self-belief and courage along the way too. I came from a boxing background and had 0 previous experience or knowledge in cyber security or computing. I was/am doing a Cyber Security degree however anyone can pass exams and make it to University! I didn't find my passion for hacking until a long time forward.
I made this blog in hopes of inspiring and motivating other students or newbies in InfoSec - not to flaunt my success. Its a really long read around 20minutes (29 according to Medium) but honestly It's worth it especially reading through to the end
I give tips and advice for newbies and intermediates, some of you may already know me from Twitter since I'm really active there but if not - feel free to drop me a follow and a message in the DM's if my blog helped you in any way!
You can view my story above ^ I urge you all to read this as I believe it will help you all in your studies!
Oh, also MANY thanks to this community! The forums are where I started and HackTheBox was where I got my feet first wet, went through a lot of painful times but exciting and great times I owe it all to this community - couldn't have done it without HTB being a thing! Truly grateful
