READ ANTHONIA’S WRITE-UP ON HER LINKEDIN BELOW;
A few weeks ago, I did what I thought would be impossible for a very long time. I graduated from the University of Kent with a First Class Degree in Computing. It still doesn’t feel real! The past four years, I’m sure like many others, was not without it’s trials and tribulations, however I am relieved to say now, that it has only made me stronger and has in fact contributed to the success I have had today.
Ever since I was a kid, I have been passionate about all things technology, which has been apparent to myself and also many others for a very long time. I first encountered computer science in secondary school where I instantly fell in love, subsequently took it for A-Levels (after much discouragement from various teachers), and finally went on to study it at university. Even though there was much pressure to pursue the medicine / pharmacy / dentistry route, I knew this is where my passion lied and I would not be giving it up easy.
Not only was it my dream to graduate with a First Class, but similarly to many other students and graduates, another one of my ultimate goals was to one day be employed at a FAANG company. For any non tech heads, this is an acronym for the five most prestigious technology companies in the world (Facebook, Amazon, Apple, Netflix and Google).
Back in the month of June, this dream also came true when I was offered the role of Associate Solutions Architect at Amazon Web Services (AWS). It felt like an impossible achievement to get my head around, and it probably still won’t feel real until I’m stepping through its big glass doors on September 19!
Growing up with a single mother, I was always made to feel like my success was going to be capped at a certain level. That I was at a disadvantage, and that it would be harder for me to do what the other kids were doing. But my mother did everything in her power to ensure that this was far from the case. I was never at a loss, never without opportunity, and always had a seat at the table, just like the other kids.Now, I think of growing up with a single mother as my superpower.
She inspires me every day to be the absolute best I can be, and I can confidently say she is the sole reason I am where I am today.I can’t wait to start the next chapter of my life and to also see what else is in store for me. Congratulations to all my fellow graduates, and here’s to the future!🥂🎓
So, from all of us at yabacampus.com, we wish her a hearty congratulations. SOAR…
