Outreachy has open more doors for me than I could have imagined. Before Outreachy, I had sent out approximately one hundred job applications, most of which I was not qualified for, and got no response. Outreachy gave me the necessary experience to meet these job qualifications and now I’ve gotten many positive responses to job applications.
But I must give credit to the person who has helped me most, my mentor Joni. Joni has taught me more than I thought I could learn in three to four months and has guided me through every experience. She knows how to strike the perfect balance between instructing me and allowing me to try things out on my own.
As I go through these new job interviews, I must thank Joni for all that she has helped me with and continues to help me with. It looks like I have a great future ahead of me.
