why have you joined crowd academy?
I believe that digital literacy is a must for all youth, young girls and boys, in addition to women. It empowers them to become competitive in the workplace and it encourages entrepreneurship. And as I believe that no one should be left behind in this global skills shift, I see Crowd machine as a creative solution for people who were not given the access to app development. I am personally looking forward, once I finish the program and get a good idea and grasp of how easy it is to empower more girls and women in less fortunate areas in our region to be part of the academy and to learn app development with the hope that they can come up with entrepreneurial ideas that will empower them to work from home and become financially independent.
What Do You Like About Crowd Academy?
So far, I like how easy and comprehensive it is. It seems easy to learn with clear instructions which I am sure it is time saving compared to learning programming.
Any Message For Any Women Thinking Of Learning Application Development?
I would highly encourage women around the world to think of this as a tool for their skills advancement and as an opportunity for their economic development.
