MY EXPERIENCE AT ANDELA BOOTCAMP: THIRD DAY
After three days at the Andela bootcamp, I realized one thing very important which is that there is no limit to what one can achieve if one is so determined. A determined and hardworking person must definitely succeed in life. At the risk of sounding like a preacher, I make bold to say that the only limitation to ones success is oneself. The extent to which you envisioned your success, that is the extent to which you will be successful. No wonder a popular motivational speaker ones said, “..aim to the moon so that should you not make it, you are sure that you have passed sky.. “ This few days at the bootcamp has made me realize that.
Challenges are inevitable in every aspect of human endeavor including being at Andela bootcamp. I had challenges implementing some algorithm, even those I knew I had implemented before the bootcamp. I equally experienced challenges with the unsteady power supply since we are required to be work from home in the first week of the bootcamp. And so many other challenges. But I had long learnt that the difference between a success and a failure is excuse. Whereas a successful person finds a way of surmounting his challenges, a failure sees those challenges as an enough excuse for not actualizing his goals. Well I decided not to be a failure and so should you. Face those fears head on like I did, and victory will surely be yours.
In conclusion, it is my believe that the experience I have gathered so far from Andela XVIII bootcamp will go a long way to helping my career as a software developer. I encourage you not to limit yourself in your dreams and aspirations in life.
