Quality-oriented high school student with a strong passion for helping others.
I am Matthew Latham, I am 17 years old. I love computers and all types of technology. My learning has been focused mostly on Cisco Networking, Windows Systems Administration, Linux Systems and Docker.
I am a young student who is invested in the world of IT. I have experience in computer repair, computer troubleshooting and small device repair. I work with the Heritage of Green Hills, doing computer support. During Covid-19, it is more important than ever to keep the Residents of the Retirement Community in touch with their family members. I assist with getting their devices set up and working, also provide training on how to use services such as E-Mail, Zoom, FaceTime, and Skype.
My true passion is Networking. My future goal in life is to become a Network Administrator for a large enterprise, or a Network Engineer. I spend a lot of my free time at home-labbing and messing around with my equipment. I love being able to experiment with different technologies or different skills. I always ask myself questions like “If I did this, what would happen” and so I try it out on my equipment at home. Better to break something in the lab environment than on a production network
So far, I have passed the CompTIA A+ and TestOut Network Pro certification exams. In the future I plan on taking my CCNA
