Brilliant Chris!! That's quiet a lot of achievement since March 😍 I'm prompted to write my own post, since my journey is very similar to yours. Except that I have far little accomplishments 😁
Many congratulations on your engagement. Infact, I'm just beginning my job hunt in Canada. Also, involved with few freelance projects in between while entertaining a 4-year old 😊
