When I took the Code Pink program, I felt a little overwhelmed at the idea of learning coding. Once I was in the class, the instructor was knowledgeable, and went at a pace that allowed us to ask questions and provided help when needed. The class had a great pace for beginners, and I found it fun to create my webpage and edit it and make updates in real time.
"For years I never knew my purpose, and what I could give back to my community. It was hearing from the instructors and other women that made me see that I was important. Getting the knowledge and strength from other women was esteem building. They gave me the confidence I needed to go out and get the job I not only wanted, but deserved."
"I don’t believe I would be working if not for the tremendous support I received from NWEC. Within 6 weeks of the program ending, I was employed. The skills gained from NWEC will be critical in my success in my new role."
The virtual assistant program was a great steppingstone to help me organize and figure out which of my talents and skills I can utilize when starting my own business as a V.A. (Virtual Assistant). Having the templates and resources that the program provided helped me set up my business. NWEC's ongoing support of women entrepreneurs is another amazing resource. I don't know if I would be as successful in my business if it were not for this program and NWEC!
