Univer OmoroPioneer Cohort Alumni
Before PLP I was a normal students with normal errands and zero pressure with life. I took the PLP as something that comes once in a life time. I got an opportunity to intern serving the role of web development co-instructor for the November 2022 Cohort which I really enjoy.
