Before the HERTECHTRAIL web design training in 2019, I had already began my web development journey but the dots were not connecting for me, the training gave me a solid and practical understanding of how the web works and my web development journey has never remained the same since then.

I was scrolling through my Twitter feed when I came across the Product Design Bootcamp. When we started, I couldn't believe the stuff I could do with the help of the Design mentors. I am grateful for the much needed push HerTechTrail gave me.
