Before joining the LIFE program, Michael-Ipinko Tosin Israel had always had a passion for computers and supported this passion with online courses from YouTube. But Financially, he did not earn a lot. According to Michael “The problem was not the lack of skills, but my mind was not exposed to certain glaring opportunities. I failed to understand that oftentimes, inconveniences are unrecognized opportunities. Looking back, I doubted myself more than I doubted anyone”.
“At the LIFE program, I learnt more than I had envisioned”. Not just my way around the computer, I was exposed to various entrepreneurial skills and opportunities I never knew existed. After the training, I can say that I am absolutely a better version than my former self”, Said Michael.
“During the training, I was fascinated by so many things. The most notable of them all was that I had never seen anyone so concerned about our future than the facilitators. When I heard the training was free, honestly speaking, I did not expect the value of resources we got”, He said.
Presently Micheal is studying Computer Science at the University of Ibadan and he is a Freelance Full-stack Web Developer, App Developer, and Graphic Designer.
