WHO WE ARE?
My journey started 20 years ago when a stranger decided to take a chance on me. That one opportunity made me who I am today. It was a Sunday afternoon when I was glancing through one of the local newspaper publications, I stumbled across an article that would change my entire life.
The article was about a gentleman who had left his home country to a neighbouring country in search of work opportunities. Unfortunately life at the onset was rough and including working odd jobs in order to survive. As fate would have it, the gentleman stumbled across an IT certification A+ by CompTIA. This certification opened up new opportunities and a better career path in the IT industry. As his career progressed the gentleman had a burning desire to make a difference, so he gathered his savings and returned home. The objective was to train at least 10 students with the A+ certification so that they wouldn’t have to go through the same struggles as he did. An article about his life and story was published in the local newspaper along with an invitation for sponsorship.
Over 500 potential candidates turned up and I was part of the 10 students that were selected for the sponsorship. That sponsorship opened up a new career path and opportunities beyond my imagination. From the humble classroom in an old building, sharing a textbook. Through that education I have gone to build a career that saw me not only travel across the world, but work with leading global companies. Twenty years down the road this platform is an opportunity to give back to the next generation and pay it forward.
