I4G Circle Members’ Gratitude Lists

In one of our weekly letters that I send to our student community, I4G Circles, I included a challenge. The challenge was for community members to write the top 5 things they’re most grateful for. They were mind-blowing and so touching.

Below are some of the responses:

I’m grateful for the learning, family, love, hope, and good sleep 

  • Chidera Okolie

I’m grateful for life, all these tech hassles won’t make sense if I was six feet under the ground.

I’m grateful for my family, when the going gets tough and I look at them I get back and keep fighting.

I’m grateful for water, for those days I was dehydrated and tired. It kept me going.

I’m grateful for football for those breaks I get to take, football makes it worthwhile.

-And lastly, I am grateful for Twitter. My tech career has experienced great growth courtesy of that space.

Toor, alhamdulilahi 😎…

  • Obasiarrey

After being awarded a bachelor’s degree in computer science, I always wanted to do Web development or software development but I got limited with my first job that was not even connected to what I had studied for. In that course, I left the workplace last year in December to continue pursuing my Tech career, all in all. I thank God because when I was resigning I told them that I had got a scholarship for my further Education and he gave me this one in I4G which I did not expect to get. But am so grateful for;

I have found myself and picked up my pieces in the Tech career after being lost for 3years.

I’m in a community full of tech people, the community that I always dreamt of.

I’m having support from you people because I always felt lost when doing coding alone with no one to help me out.

I’m having hope that after this course, I’ll be somewhere better than yesterday when I didn’t have the tech skills.

I’m having hope that I’ll make new friends around the world from this circle.
