The beginning of my YWebCA internship

Now as a member of the team, I have never felt more welcomed and supported. I have heard stories about bad internship experiences from friends who were shuffled out of the way and who left their positions feeling undervalued.

Without this Class

Without this class, I never would have been able to work up the courage to negotiate my wage.

Based on This Courage

Now I am so excited about the feature, work to hard to improve myself and help others.

I tend to…

That little girl pictured with the joyous sun filled smile is my motivation. Making sure she is happy and provided for her is everything. So knowing that every day I wake up and go to YWeb and get stuff done I am working towards building the future she deserves is everything.

My Upcoming SUCCESS

The YWCA is a plus for me. I have always been a windows guys and this YWCA class is allowing me to be a Windows / Mac guy. I decided to apply to this class because I wanted to learn and I am learning a lot not just for my future profession, but for my life and I am really grateful.

It’s Been Five Weeks

Another key point I want to highlight of my time here is that Steinbok and Rashied have touched upon the concept of degree vs. experience. Rashied said one day, “Degree does not necessarily equate to wealth.” It does not invalidate a college education and I do believe everyone should go to university, as many doors open. But as with everything else in life, very rarely anything is handed to you unless you're privileged, so you are going to have to work and sacrifice for it.

Doing Better

This time around, however, I plan on overcoming my shortcoming academia standard by becoming more organized allowing myself to manage my time better.

The Most Challenging Part

Rashied and Julia have been awesome in preparing me for my IT Career. I was given training in self-worth, self-confidence, and self-esteem. I went on field trips and toured IT and Financial businesses located in Madison, WI. I got a first-hand view of the life of a software developer. YWEB has given me the drive to succeed as a software developer.

A Serious and New Experience

However, I just consider that as a reminder of the challenge that I have to fight and the must of getting out my comfort zone.
