Why "Mobile First"?

Hi Experts,

I took a CSS course, and was thought that when designing a website with @media breakpoints, start from the smallest (mobile) and work up to tablet, desktop, etc... Is there a specific reason for this?

Personally, I'd prefer the opposite - laying out all my elements on my desktop, then work down to tablet, then finally mobile?

Any feedback will be appreciated.
