Testimonials - Students

Hi MWB, Sophie Wabuge here and i just want to say that am very grateful for the opportunity to learn a new programming language, Python and that too with the best mentor and tutor, Tuhin Samanta who is always ready to help, share his knowledge and encourages me to practice more and worry less. This has greatly improved my confidence in programming and I'm really having so much fun learning, knowing that every day brings me closer to my goal. Practicing the super focused relaxation method from Edmond's article has been of great help. Thank you MWB, because of you Monday is just but the best day of the week for me.

I have been enjoying the lessons with Mayank very much. And I believe day by day I am getting closer to my goal. It would not be an exaggeration if I say that the mental exercise, super focus method and the relaxation techniques work like a magical bridge that connect us with our goal.
I would like to add that I am very much grateful to Mentors Without Borders for giving me this opportunity.

My sessions with MWB have been really helpful. I pursue a bachelor's degree in Pharmacy but I also find interest in business courses. Apart from being a pharmacist, I also want to be a product manager and MWB has empowered my dream through its mentorship program. My mentors have been amazing, they're the most understanding people I've interacted with and approachable as well. I've been able to seek clarification where I don't understand and learnt to be faithful to myself by having to adhere to my learning schedule. I feel privileged to have learnt so much with my mentors.

Greetings to Mentors Without Borders MWB. I wish to take this very opportunity to thank the MWB organization. Thanks to my mentor, Mukul Anand. I learned a lot from the program under the guidance of Mukul. I really had a good experience and I enjoyed the process and every part of the program. This was indeed a dream come true. I learned programming, software like CSS, Bootstrap, Java and how to build apps and websites.
I want to say that I am very grateful for this special opportunity and I cannot take this for granted. The mentorship made me realize my field of specialization, my dream and my desire. My mentor was ready to answer all my questions and led me to the right answers. During the three months, I learned a lot that increased my chance, knowledge and understanding of Information Technology. It made me realize my potential. This gave me an advantage in my future studies in IT, a field I want to pursue next year.
Thanks MWB for the opportunity and super program model that is friendly, insightful and easy to follow. Thank you Mukul, Edmond and all the MWB partners for supporting this program.

I am sincerely grateful for this wonderful opportunity provided by MWB for free. I have always desired switching from social science to tech or integrating both skills to harness my community development work, but the financial constraints and lack of motivation has always kept me back. After coming across the call for mentees from MWB in the Open Dreams WhatsApp platform, I immediately applied. Now I am happily learning programming and web development basics. I am confident that I will soon build my own website and become a backend developer. Thank you MWB!

I am very grateful to MWB Mentors. I really enjoyed the sessions of Ashwini, her way of teaching is very good. She takes care of the convenience of the students and never hesitates to help. Edmond has also helped me a lot in achieving my goals. He also gave me good blogs to read. Adopting them has changed my lifestyle a lot and I also believe that I am very close to my goals. So I want to say a heartfelt thank you to the mentors of MWB and it was a pleasure learning from them. Thank you!

I have been enjoying the lessons with madam Bhoomika and the relaxation method too I am becoming used to it. The steps I have been adding makes me think I am closer to my goal.

I personally love the sessions with Ujjwall, I always look forward to Saturdays because I know that I will be picking a new concept. I am personally impressed by how he explains the concepts related to data and how willing he is to accept questions and always ready to help.

The documents he shared on relaxation and super focus for example have been very useful to me. I am noticing a difference already.

I feel I am getting closer to my goal and I am slowly growing in confidence with regards to data science.

I really enjoy learning with mentors from MWB. They are so nice and really understanding of the student that is not familiar or really did not know anything yet about the codes that we're learning here. And with their guidance, I slowly but surely am getting closer to achieving my goals. Thank you, MWB!

My name is Joan Obunge and I’m a web development student at Learning Lions Institute. Meeting with Abhishek, my mentor, has been the best opportunity in my career. He has helped me with my coding skills and I have learned many new things in programming languages and apart from that he has improved my business and communication skills. I would say that I admire his passion and willingness to help people like us achieve their dreams.

Since I started having different classes with teacher Prashant about how to make a website by using some computer languages like HTML and CSS with other different tags, by the first time I didn’t understand much, but through asking him different questions I felt very excited about what I was learning.

I always feel to appreciate teacher Prashant for his teaching methodology, he always inspires me. He used to ask some different questions to make sure if I understand what we learnt, he always encouraged me to ask him some questions I had through reading, he motivates me by giving some homework to cover for next session. He is really my friendly teacher.

The lessons have been a dream come true for me considering that I always wanted to learn programming. My mentor has been trying by all means to make me feel comfortable and it has been efficient with the aid of the relaxation methods. My goal is finally showing some clarity and hope. If it goes on this way, I will definitely be testifying something big in the coming time.

My mentor, Zain has made my web development journey fun and interesting. Apart from learning technical coding skills from him, he's also been a source of encouragement to me whenever I'm down. My goal is to be a full stack web developer and Zain has done nothing less than to make sure I reach that goal.

I feel really great to be part of the MWB 2020 training. This training is more than ordinary data science learning for me personally because it involves practical applications, knowing the simple basic programming steps and teaches one how to handle pressure or relax when encountering difficult tasks to do. I also learn and relearn the magnitude of challenges one will face when solving coding but how one will relax the mind to be able to take unnecessary pressure out was the height of it for me. It wasn't an easy journey but I have a great Mentor who is so patient and able to carry me along. Thank you MWB for retooling my skills and it’s such a great privilege. Hopefully I can apply what I have learned and contribute my quota to my local community or Organization.

I am Omotayo Oluwaseun, a trainee on Web Development, with Mr. Deepak as my trainer/mentor.
I have been enjoying the training for the past one month plus now, spanning from the introduction to HTML, CSS, & JavaScript currently.

I have been practising all that I am learning & seeking for ways to know how to do better even as I look forward to other aspects of lectures/topics to come that will make me to know more on web development.

Also, I am learning the fast relaxation method when I am stressed or discouragement seems to set in.
I am very grateful to MWB, Mr Edmond & Mr Deepak for this great opportunity & avenue to learn.

First of all I just want to thank Mentors Without Borders for giving us hope through the best mentors I have ever met, I am going well with my mentor. For sure I am not used to writing goals down and meditating or thinking about the positivity at the end of it. I am so glad that Ragu is so friendly especially when asking us questions about what we have learnt through the week. Thank you so much for the opportunity you have given us.

Brandard Emuria

I am so proud to participate in the MWB program which gave me a great experience so far from scratch to somewhere in programming! In the beginning we had a hard time and we gave a lot of work to our teacher Mr Prashant as we didn't have any idea about programming (HTML, CSS and others), setting goals and how to plan consistently steps towards those goals! Big thanks to Mr Prashant for being patient! I still have the courage to reach to the end of the program and learn more for website development as my major goal and others! I thank MWB for this amazing opportunity which will shape our future and expose us into this advanced technology growing world day and night!

My name is Bright Zenda and I got introduced to MWB a month ago, when I started my programming course. Without prior knowledge on the subject it hasn’t been easy but I am grateful for the great mentor I have. He is so understanding and has helped me so much already. I’m confident I will achieve my goal. Thank you MWB!

The training has been a very exciting one, my teacher Vaibhav has been very patient and understanding, taking the lessons one step at a time from known to unknown. I appreciate my instructor for his sacrifices and Edmond for his encouragement and motivation so far. Mentors Without Borders is doing a great job!

I am really grateful for all people who do tutorials, in any field, and post them on the internet for anyone to access with little or no charge. As awesome as that is, Mentors Without Borders goes an extra mile by providing real-time lessons with experienced volunteers from across the world. This provides me a platform to directly ask questions and ask for clarity whenever I get stuck. Moreover, doing lessons with someone who knows me at an individual level and actually cares about my progress has given me an incentive to put extra hours in learning programming during the week more than I did with randomly downloaded tutorials.

Rutendo Sibanda
- Makomborero Zimbabwe

I have been enjoying my lessons with my mentor. I didn’t know that programming was this interesting until I started working with my mentor (Malay) from Mentors Without Borders.

Most importantly, I have been writing down the steps to achieve my goal ever since I started my sessions with my mentor and I have realized that it is good to write down my goal and steps because by writing them down I get to visually see what I want to achieve and work towards it by following the steps I have written down.

I must say, I am very happy and excited about my future as a programmer.

I am glad to be part of MWB, it’s been almost a month now since I started the sessions and mentorship journey with my mentor Shivam.

Working with Shivam has been really great and has added great impact to my life in terms of goal's pursuit and being resilient in coping up with the situations around as far as Covid pandemic is concerned.
For the past 3 weeks I have been able to learn new things like setting my goals and steps of achieving them. Goal setting process comprising of mental processing method, relaxation method and super focus method which have enabled me to acquire new ways and methods of working on my goals and so far it has seen me through achieving some of my short term goals.

I have begun coding classes too with Shivam now learning coding languages and website design and it’s been nice so far, I feel am growing and learning.

My mentor Utkarsh has been wonderful and very instrumental in helping me achieving my goals. He was able to transfer the knowledge of programming in a clear and simple way. My understanding of Java has greatly increased from zero to 5 on a scale of 10.

Philip Hegarty
- SI4DEV Nigeria

I have only had three programming sessions so far but I can now write the once foreign language as if it were my mother tongue. Programming is by no means easy but my mentor, Tarak Sharma, has the super power to explain complex things in the simplest manner possible. I enjoy our sessions together and I am anxious for each hectic week to end so that I can have another session. I feel like I am mastering the skills and I am getting closer to my goal but, with patience and experience, I can get better.

Noel Katsidzira

Through the Mentors Without Borders (MWB) programme, I (without prior knowledge of coding) am close to creating a static website after only a couple of sessions with my mentor; and I know it can only get better. The mentors are approachable and their genuine interest in your progress is palpable. Thumbs up, MWB!
