With a decade of service industry knowledge and experience working my way up from a team member to a manager, I decided mid-2016 that I should peruse my passion for technology.
This new and exciting journey started in August 2016, I attended clearing at Staffordshire University and after a conversation with a computing lecture, I was offered a place on Computing Science Degree. I was so happy and excited for the future, and couldn’t wait to get stuck in, I made a promise to myself that I would put 100% effort into the course over the four years.
After my second year, I had the option to take an industrial placement as part of the course, the teaching staff highly recommended completing one. I decided that the benefits of completing the placement were too great to ignore, so I completed my one year at Codeweavers Ltd. I had an awesome year at Codeweavers and came back to university to complete my final year with so much knowledge and experience.
With this knowledge, experience, and final year studies I completed university with First Class Honours. I could not have been more pleased and prouder, all the hard work and effort really paid off.
On graduating from my degree, I was offered an opportunity with the university to create my own business on a scheme called ‘Be Inspired’. The Be Inspired scheme provides training, business mentors, and funding to help create a start-up. I jumped at the opportunity, attending interviews, and mandatory training sessions. I was offered a place on the scheme; I was over the moon and could not wait to get stuck in.
I have trained for four years and studied hard, learning everything from hardware, computer software to cloud infrastructure, artificial intelligence, and programming. So, it was quite natural to create a technology company, utilising all of my training, knowledge, and experiences not only from my university days but also in my previous career in management and the service industry.
