I Might Not Have A Job By Monday

39

Fake it till you make it I have always abided by this policy and it had been working out till now...... This is going to be a lengthy post but please read, I need all the help and advice I can get. Last year, I got a job by manipulating my CV and being punctual to an interview, but amazingly it provided an opportunity where I could learn on the job, I am a fast learner so I crossed that bridge easily. I had access to a work laptop and unlimited internet (all through my years in school, I didn't own a laptop , so this is a big deal for me). I thought of the limitless things I could learn online which I couldn't do before, I finally settled on my old time love, programming (Flashback) I started learning coding on my phone in 2017 but along the line, I got frustrated and stopped, it wasn't easy without a laptop. Then in 2018/2019, a man on Twitter started an initiative Laptop4Developers, which provided aspiring coders with laptop and a learning environment. NOTE : emphasis on "aspiring". It was the maiden edition and I joyously entered the DM of the guy, spoke at length, told him I was interested and he laid down the conditions of which he only told me I had to get sponsors and RT; people who were going to donate money. I solicited far and wide for support on Twitter. I was living and breathing on Twitter for more than a month , RTing all the posts and commenting, when I didn't even have data, I borrowed, in a hope that I'd win. I finally found someone to sponsor me and he donated money, albeit not enough money to buy a new laptop but he did . I checked the GoFundMe page, all other sponsors were foreign philanthropists. Long story short, we even exceeded the target , and he increased the number of potential winners . I smiled knowing after all my hard work I was going to get one. This was when magic happened. Lol
