Serving Something Outside of Myself

I came in as a transfer student at UW Madison about a year ago. I was a standing Junior, and I was struggling with a sense of purposelessness. I know my purpose should have been scholastic success, but with very few friends in the area I spent a lot of my free time alone in my dorm room.

Speak Truth to Power

As a researcher of digital literacy at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, I’m interested in finding stories about how marginalized people use digital technology to better their lives and speak truth to power, so to speak.

The Preparation

A group of interns from American Family Insurance sat down with instructors from YWeb to learn more about the program and how it has helped dozens of people jumpstart their careers. As students getting ready to enter the workforce, we asked Rasheid and Julia what YWeb does to prepare its students for success.

I knew I would face couple of challenges

While I was waiting for my permit, I could not work hence I had to sit at home. I was looking for opportunity to kill my time as I had no friends and family to be with. So, I started to look out for opportunities that could allow me to volunteer.

Knowledge or Experience

When I learned about the YWeb program I was hesitating to enroll because I thought that my educational background does not relate in any way to it.

Greater Heights

I came to this program because I wanted something more for myself and my family. What I had was great but there was no progression, unless I went off and started my own business.

Being Part of a Team

For me, music and technology have been lifelong constants; I grew up listening to recordings of great musical masterworks even before playing an instrument.
