How did you find about Tech Industry Gold accredited degrees? I found out about Tech Industry Gold via UCAS! I had a strong technical and business background; therefore, I wanted to enrol on a degree that combines both.

What was the best moment of your degree experience?

It would be challenging for me to pinpoint one particularly memorable experience as every moment spent studying for my degree has been one that will never be forgotten. However, I do like challenges, so I would say meeting employers at various events and visiting some to gain industry insights has been a plus!

What was the most challenging experience?

I loved studying for my degree and everything that came with it apart from COVID-19!

What would you say now to yourself before you enrolled on your degree?

I would pat myself on the back and tell myself that I am making a great choice.

What would you say to anyone considering a Tech Industry Gold degree?

I would strongly recommend joining the Tech Industry Gold accredited degree if you have a passion for Information Technology and Business. This degree would offer you literally that – a mixture of both!

What are you planning to do this summer?

This degree has opened many doors for me and taught me valuable skills such as leadership and management, which I will now be using when leading my teams at Jukkie Digital Agency and Workscan.

What are your career plans?

I want to continue doing what I love doing, and that is creating revolutionary startups with the aim of bettering the future of technology and business.

Who inspires you?

I am inspired by those who thrive on stepping outside their comfort zone and are unafraid to venture into the unknown. Whether it is the famous climbers and athletes I read about in books or the entrepreneurs and scientists who fundamentally changed how the world works today. I would also like to leave my mark on this world, and I believe that working for your companies and attempting to improve the future of business and technology is a way to do so.

Anything else to add?

Special thanks to my family, university friends, teammates, lecturers, and TechSkills. This isn’t the end of our journey; it’s just the beginning. Congratulations, class of 2021!
