Looking for a mentor

I'm a beginner in MQL5 and I have been learning for about a week. I guess i should impress you maybe, so...... 

I have a very small background in html,css and Javascript.

I speak 4 languages and i am fluent in 2

I have been studying trading for a little over a 1 year, I study trading for 1 hour everyday. 

Now a days i study mql5 everyday for 1 hour instead.

I'll let it be known that I will NOT ask for you to code something for me,

I wont ask for you to give me the answer to a problem,

I wont ask for money,

I wont ask unproductive questions,

and other obvious things that i shouldn't ask.


I really love trading, its the one thing that i have never gotten tired of, I'll be trading till I die and I want to dedicate my life to this stuff and I love programming but I stopped in the past because I could never think of something to build. I really want to make trading my full time job and soon automated trading aswell.

I already have a few bots running but they are third party, I have created my own trading system that I hope to one day automate with mql5.


Sorry if these kind of posts are not allowed, im just really struggling on how im supposed to learn this language, its kind of obscure so there aren't as many resources for it like there are Js, python, etc..., but then I think, people were able to master mql4 back in the early 2000s when there weren't as many resources and tutorials, so if they could do it then, then I could do it today.

Thanks for reading this
