Andela: The journey begins!

Perfection is not attainable, but if we chase perfection we can catch excellence.-Vince Lombardi

This is it. The moment I’ve been waiting for. The opportunity to unleash my potentials and collaborate with great minds accross Africa and the world at large! The opportunity to be a Technical Leader via the Andela Fellowship!!

It all started with the online application and assesment, followed by Home Study then, in-person interview. After many days of anxiety and doubts, I got an invite to the bootcamp. This is also followed by a short period of anxiety (Sighs..Andela sure knows how to keep you in suspense). Finally, a Welcome to Andela! mail.

I see the bootcamp as an interactive two weeks of character moulding, coding and acculturization (Well, that’s what it is to me). If you’ve missed my previous posts on this, please click here.

During the bootcamp, I met a lot of great minds and passionate software developers like myself and let me say, I’m honoured. Some of us got accepted into the fellowship at the end and some weren’t.

To all that made it to the fellowship, congrats! This is just the beginning so, get ready for some EPICness! To those that didn’t make it to the fellowship, it’s an opportunity to improve and try again. Keep the fire burning!!

My journey to being a world-class developer has just begun and it’s only going to get better!!
