MY GOALS FOR THIS INTERNSHIP
All our dreams can come true, if we have the courage to pursue them. – Walt Disney.
Below are the Goals and Expectations I have for this internship...
1. BECOME A FINALIST
The HNG T-Shirt Swag will certainly look good on me 😁. At whatever the cost , I hope to make it to the end of this program. I want to be called a Finalist and I am ready to put in the work and make the needed sacrifices. My passion has always been to become a better developer good enough to work anywhere in the world, HNG is just what I need. With HNG, I would be pushed out of my comfort zone and tested on 'arid grounds', the journey would be hard and very demanding but I hope to emerge victorious in the end. In preparation of what is to come , I decided to sharpen my frontend skills by taking the courses listed below
- FIGMA - FIGMA BEGINNER'S CRASH COURSE
- GIT - GIT Tutorial
- HTML - HTML W3SCHOOLS COURSE
2. MAKE CONNECTIONS
Networking is marketing. Marketing yourself, your uniqueness, what you stand for. - Christine Comaford
Networking is important in the life of every developer, as such, I hope to network and meet new people during the cause of this internship. Even If I don't become a finalist, I will forever cherish the experience, the friends and the memories I made during this internship.
Special thanks to the HNG Team for their selfless community work in bringing out the best in people and rising stars. At the end of this program I hope to make the finalist cut and to have become a better developer. I hope I survive the storm and get ashore, possibly land a job after the internship.
