any late bloomer in Robotics?

Hi sub, I understand that the “late” word is subjective. I just want to hear some inspiring stories from people who have started in late 20s and was able to get into this field.

  1. What do you do for a living before you decided you want to do robotics?
  2. What are the preparations you did when are applying for master’s/jobs?

Currently 27 now and planning to take masters next year (hopefully) without any experience in Robotics. Right now I am learning C++ then will go for ROS in 3mos. But on the side, I am also brushing up my linear algebra and building 3D models in fusion 360.
