I am fascinated with anything that has to do with Technology/the Internet, but I never had the opportunity to explore because there was no access to a computer due to affordability. Ajegunle LIFE program has brought about development in my community and a lot of youth including myself have benefitted from the digital inclusion initiative.
Though I had a little background on the use of a computer this cannot be compared to the exposure I had during my training at the AjegunleLIFE Centre. I didn’t want to attend the training because I believed there was nothing new to learn, but my parent made me understand that there is always more to everything and also hearing a family friend’s testimony motivated me to aspire for more.
The Training Centre is a conducive learning environment; with the stat of the art infrastructures and equipment, dedicated facilitators, and highly intuitive students. We were encouraged to carry out research works, which has been very helpful till date.
Being connected has really made a difference in my life because it has given me the opportunity to reach out to an audience beyond my immediate community. The skill I have acquired has really helped me in many ways, most especially the Life skills- “Self-awareness and Time Management”. Learning about these has really been an added advantage in my day to day activities.
I currently work as a “Computer Operator” at Ajegunle Diagnostic Centre, managing the laboratory’s database and sorting out (printing, typing, editing) of scan and test results. I am also improving on my ICT skill by learning Programming related courses online and also building myself to becoming a “Media Strategist/Publicist”.
The AjegunLIFE program has really instilled in me, a self and continuous development mindset. The training really inspired me a lot and I want to especially appreciate Mr Odunsi Oluwaseyi Gabreal and Mr Taiwo Olalekan for their relentless efforts in making me a better person. Thank you Paradigm Initiative for connecting us to the world that seemed beyond.
