Mesoma The Lawyer
Mesoma, as we have mentioned, is a lawyer. She is a Nigerian but she lives in the UK. Although she has a strong legal background, she yearned to secure a place in the technology industry. Well, this should not surprise you since the world is headed in that direction. We encourage women all around the world to get a tech skills now so they can continue to have a high competitive edge in the now digitized planet earth.
Mesoma knew better than most and sought a future in tech. She sought a tech career that dealt with data management, project management, or HR, and we found the right one for her – Business Analysis!. However, she didn’t have all the courage she needed to thrive. Like many, she felt not just whelmed but overwhelmed and thought it was rocket science. A male-dominated industry? Spending hours in front of a computer screen in a hoodie and jeans? Is that what she was going all-in for?
Thankfully, she met Heels and Tech, and then she got help for her fears, had a confidence boost, and started on her journey to become Mesoma the Business Analyst!
“Sometimes I doubt myself in this Move” – Mesoma
Before Mesoma met Heels and Tech, she was skeptical about pursuing her dreams to work in the tech space. She told us all about her fears and drawbacks, in her words, “Sometimes I doubt myself in this move. I really want it, but I just wonder if I will be able to pull it off”.
Do you sometimes feel this way? It is perfectly normal, and you just need the right help to pull through with everything. Our arms are always 180° open to embrace you and teach you all you need to know to excel.
Mesoma’s success gives us real joy because she’s not just excelling for herself, she is inspiring thousands of women out there, especially those who are too scared to take a step.
Mesoma didn’t trust Heels and Tech blindly. She made sure she asked the right questions and understood how relevant the course she was about to enroll in was. In one of our many sessions, she said, “…I just wonder if I will be able to pull it off. If I can actually transmit what I have learned into securing a job role”. When she was finally convinced that we had what it took to guide her through her transition into tech, Mesoma The Lawyer started taking baby steps to become Mesoma the Business Analyst, in just four weeks. She fell in love with the course completely and found numerous opportunities out there. Mesoma confirmed we were teaching her all she needed to know to land a role.
She said, “I’ve been checking and seeing loads. Most of the job descriptions are exactly what we are doing in class.”
