How did I become a facilitator ?
I became a Facilitator for my University’s Developer Student Club that is GDSC VIT Bhopal.
The 30 Days of Cloud Facilitator program will provide you an opportunity to become a mentor (“Facilitator”) for your peers so that they can explore cloud computing as a career and thus become #GoogleCloudReady.
The GDSC Lead of our University asked all core team members about their interest, and then I was asked to fill a google form where I had to showcase my skills and why I wanted to become a google cloud facilitator.
On September 15, I got a mail where I got a mail regarding my selection in the program and the next steps.
