አዜብ ገብረዊወት - My name is Azieb Gebrehiwet was born in Eritrea, went to high School and college in the USA, currently living in a small town in North West of Germany, with my husband and two children. I first heard about the IT Foundation and AWS Cloud Training when Josiah Johnson Umezurike came on ES’s Channel, and made an announcement about the program, that he wanted to offer to women and mother’s. His message spoke to me directly, so I immediately made contact. I started the class with very little skills or experience in IT. I felt quite intimidated and overwhelmed by what I was about to learn. Despite these feelings, I made a decision to stay on board. Even when I felt at times like giving up on the program, Josiah’s dedication, encouragement and powerful words were the best motivation to keep pushing. Also for meeting you all great ladies, but most of all, for Natalie I am so grateful for you, you have helped me to stay on board as well. You have been my sister-friend and always supportive.
