About Michael Vanin

Driven with Purpose, Aiming for Excellence

Michael Vanin, Web Developer

I have had an interest in computers, technology, and coding from a very young age, and it was in 2019 that my interest kindled as I began watching and self-studying web development online. In mid-2019 I begin building basic HTML and CSS websites for local businesses while continuing to self-study JavaScript.

I later enrolled in College of the North Atlantic’s 2-year Enterprise Web Development program, where I learned many web languages, frameworks, and best practices, and where I graduated top of my class. I completed my studies while also working full-time in the insurance industry, so in addition to a well-rounded education in web development, I bring a plethora of other transferable soft skills such as communication, teamwork, time management, and working remotely.

Achievements of Excellence

In graduating top of my class from the 2-year Enterprise Web Development diploma program, I was recipient of the President’s Medal of Excellence. Besides finishing with the top grades in my program, I also had the top grades among all Information Technology diploma programs, for which I received the CNA IT Distinction Scholarship. In addition, I had the highest grades among all students on my campus, for which I received The Governor General’s Academic Award. In my full-time insurance role which I worked while completing my diploma in Enterprise Web Development, I won the Values Star Award, for exemplifying the company’s values of “excellence, generosity, integrity, respect, and being customer-driven.”

Humble to Grow

While receiving awards and accolades can be pleasant to receive and a way to show the value which others place on my work, my real professional aspiration as a web developer is to become better every day — to be continuously learning, to consistently improve in my ability to provide value to my employer, to seek challenges and opportunities to grow, to be the best I can be. I do this with a humbleness of mind, for it is by the grace of God that I am what I am.
