I first came in contact with HerTechTrail when I started looking for where to learn a tech skill. I am super glad I did because I got to collaborate and make impact through the assignment and project groups created. I taught others what I knew, reached out to those I knew were better than me and it helped me learn. I got to put in practical work what I learnt from our weekly classes with the assignments given. I got my leadership skills tested because humans are never easy to manage but with patience, encouragement, shared responsibility and being firm we all got the best out of each other. I am proud to be a part of the HerTechTrail community.

The Cohort 6 Frontend Web Dev Ladies were a source of strength to each other and so I gained a sisterhood at the academy. Also, tasking us to put our work on social media boosted my confidence as I had professionals commenting and encouraging me. I am indeed grateful for this opportunity and look forward to continuing my learning and growth at the academy to enhance my skills and compete effectively in the tech space.

I enrolled for the 4th cohort in July for the Digital Marketing track, and I can say that I had the best experience. Different aspects of digital marketing were dissected for easy assimilation, the classes were interactive and one of my favourite moments was after class assessment. HerTechTrail coaches do not joke with assessments which help every student to put the knowledge gained to solve real-life problems
