Very often I hear that I do too many things. While that may be true, I still believe in using your ability to learn and apply whatever you learn.
Who am I and why do I write?
I’m Wendy! I’m a twenty-something year old kinetic-ambitious-learner. I enjoy learning things that are useful to me and can make money. I have a degree B.Sc something in Computing & Information Systems but you need a ton experience (mind you I’m only in my 20’s) in order to make use of that degree. You need at least 5 years working and practical experience plus 3-6 certificates in different aspects of computing. How come they didn’t tell me this before I spent my money on the degree tuition? Well you’ll have to ask the person or people who make up the job descriptions for candidates.
Anyway, I have been acquiring skills ever since the age of 16. I first began with Agriculture… they were paying me to learn so yeah… but after the 2nd week I began liking it and decided to stay on the program and also joined another similar program where I worked in a garden after school hours. It was very nice to learn how to grow your own garden and earn from it. I later decided to get involved in the field of computing where I moved on to university to study Business Computing. Meanwhile I got married, attended school and worked full time for a very small salary and still couldn’t land an entry level job in the Computing field. Sucked.
I picked up three more skills while attending university, Bread-Cakes-Pastries, Nail Technology and Cosmetology. They were all being offered free and only cost me one day per week. Hey, I learned to earn! Still I couldn’t save up enough money to do the million and something certs the employers demanded because they were either at the wrong time or wrong place for the year. I got sick pretty often with PCOS and now hell, Fibroids…
Allah indeed blessed me with so much, a beautiful baby boy and the strength to finish what I started, my degree in Computing & Information Systems.
Today I love writing, sewing, cleaning (my home, and sometimes redecorating), stationery and my family. I pray as much as I can. I love being a Muslim.
Stay tuned for more of my new hobbies and especially my sewing projects.
