Hello /r/web_design, i’d like your advice on something
I’m a 24 year old woman living and working in Amsterdam the Netherlands as front-end developer at a company that specializes in Magento webshops

I have an Interaction Designer degree on lower level college and i’m currently doing an part-time distance education for a bachelor’s degree in Communication and Multimedia design.

this is my 2nd year working as a front-end developer, I just got hired into this company last month after my last company went bankrupt and got recommended to the bosses here. The thing is, I’m starting to feel like I don’t want to do Magento development and maybe even front-end development as a whole. My passies lies with UX/UI design, and i love seeing those designs becoming an reality through front-end development, which kind of confused me into thinking I wanted to be a front-end developer because out of the two functions, it’s way easier to get a good paying job as front-end developer.

Now i’m having to face my decision, I really am starting to feel i’d rather work as an UI/UX designer but am scared it won’t be easy to find an well paying job, and I really do need the money because school isn’t cheap, and i’m making plans to move out very soon

Do you have any advice for me? I allready have started setting my portfolio up over at http://daisytammer.com/
