Career change FROM frontend to something else

I am reaching out to the community today with a purpose of seeking guidance and advice as I embark on a journey to transition from my current role in front-end development to a new career path.

Having worked in front-end development for 9 years, I've gained valuable skills in areas like Design, React, Javascript, Graphql, Java. While I have enjoyed my time in this field, I believe it's time for a new challenge that aligns with my evolving interests and goals.

My strong skillsets are easy to learn, adaptable, doing research, organizing, I am hoping to find an opportunity to utilize my existing skills while also learning and developing new ones. I am excited about the potential for growth and the chance to contribute in different ways.
