CHIBUENYI

“Through hard work and dedication, I got an Internship at Salesforce as a technical writer. It felt like I’d been in a dark room, and all of a sudden, someone opened the door and let in some light. For the first time, I had confidence in myself. I had something to look forward to. For the first time, I was proud of myself.”
