Hi.. I an Karimah Lawal.
I hold a Bachelor's degree in Economics and a Post graduate diploma in Education.
I am an Entrepreneur and a Teacher.
Of course, I thought to myself that I deserve much more than what I earn, reason I registered for the BA course.
The last eight weeks of training was indeed an eye opener. I was introduced into the world of tech with #no-code.. how fascinating!
I learned how to work with tools such as Office 365 to collaborate with my team.
I also learned how to use Visio, draw.io(UML diagrams), Jira, Confluence, Lucid Chart, Figma (On how to create user persona, design , wifeframing, prototyping, etc to complete BA tasks.
Our project was about creating an App for a Microfinance Bank who wants to improve their HR processes i.e, they want to migrate from the manual way of doing things to automation.
We had the opportunity to meet with the project sponsor/stakeholder.. we had an elicitation session in order to know the requirements.
I worked with other development team members like the scrum master, product owner, QA, etc. We had daily scrum meetings where we were able to research and brainstorm to understand the requirements of the business and create the solution that would meet the needs of the business.
Our facilitator Petrina, very patient, knowledgeable and experienced. Always willing to go back if anyone doesn't understand. By the way, my group had the best mentors. Oyeyinka and Erin.. ooh, always willing to help us understand a lot of things. God bless them.
Thank you so much Heels and Tech. You've really helped me personally with a renewed mindset. Now I believe I can and I'll by the grace of God. Thank you for making this course hands-on. Indeed, nothing good comes easy.
Thank you H & T.
