My We-Discover Impact Story

How did the We-Discover Cohort impact you?

My name is Chisom Odinde, I am an Associate Technology Consultant. At the beginning of the year, getting a career mentor was one of my goals. I was at a point where I really needed guidance. I was already working hard but I needed direction from someone I could relate to, who has passed through this phase in the tech industry.

What was the best part of the program for you?

The best part of the program for me, was my wentor — Ufua Ameh, also the various Saturday trainings and webinars on communication, networking as so on.

How did your wentor impact your success journey?

I have improved both personally and professional since the beginning of the cohort till this moment, thanks to my very relatable mentor Ufua Ameh. She taught me how to write and accomplish my SMART goals. She followed up constantly, sharing links, applications, and assignments to help me achieve them. Her good works results in me writing 3 certifications, joining a professional body, and landing a better tech job.

What advice will you give to future wentees?

When I really needed a career mentor, Wentors came to the rescue, if you come across this story, take some minutes of your time to apply for this next cohort. It’s a step you will be grateful you took. The love, support, motivation, and inspiration of ladies all over the world doing great things in tech are some of the things you should look forward to. One more thing, you don’t need to have a tech background, you just need to be interested in tech as there has been a lot of inspirational career switch stories. You could be next.
