I found the course so easy to follow and interesting that I started to set aside a couple of hours a week to try and learn a little more.
At the time I was working a really terrible job and hating it. I’d grad…
I’d love to share my story for the others not to lose their faith in themselves.

During my time with this company, I started to realize that I am en…
