I’m Austin Zitting
Having dropped out of high school, I knew I had to defy expectations. I had no idea where to start, so I was passing the time with what I love; technology. I was known for this thing where I’d log in to unsecured modems and set wifi names to something obscure, in some cases just my name.
One victim of my shenanigans happened to be the former principle and jack-of-all-trades at a local homeschool co-op, which was in dire need of somebody to teach Computers 101 after the previously lined-up teacher backed out.
After little convincing from the board, I agreed to fill in until a replacement was found. I was eventually offered the gig for the whole year, as well as the opportunity to adopt the responsibilities of another class before I’d even be starting my own Sophomore year in high school. I came to live by the belief that you have to create your own opportunities in life.
