Sometimes, in the inner city, where education is not the main focal point. Parents, our first teachers, are focused on survival that the value of education is missed. But you learn life skills needed to survive. I think both are equally important. The best way to break the generational curses of poverty, low education, is attending the Yweb programs. That’s what I will be gaining or taking away from Yweb.
For me, Yweb means economic growth, lady power (tech), education and life skills.
Yweb graphic and web development, Education and life skills help to end poverty. I also gained invaluable interviewing skills, Resume writing and public speaking.
I learned that, the more you practice, the better you will be. Every morning we did standup and at first it was very uncomfortable. After a while, it got easier and easier. We got to know each other and I have come to gain valuable friends.
We went to meet-ups networking with other people in tech priceless! The field trips was also nice learning from the businesses working in the field. The presentations was great and knowledge is power.
Because of Yweb, I am more prepared for the world of tech. I understand more about what skills are needed to work in the tech field and which jobs I feel more comfortable doing.
I am a UX/UI designer with photography an video skills. I will continue to learn and practice of the skills I have gained in the Yweb program.
Thanks Rasheid, Julia and Yweb one of the best opportunity anyone could even ask for.
