    I worked with several startups, from a project based in San Francisco to companies from Israel. It’s always fun to work with less structured organizations, finally put together a strong team and create a network within a company. I haven’t chosen to become a Project Manager, the job kinda fell into my lap. I really enjoyed helping people around me, and I simply noticed that the skills I had were enough to grow in that area. I highly emphasize that the course should have a lot of practical lessons. I have structured the course in such a way that would enable the students to not only get theoretical knowledge, but also real tools which they could use in their day to day life. My hobbies are running, watching movies, and spending time on self-education. You have to constantly work on yourself if you want to stay and grow in this field.

    The more I studied Front-End Development myself, the more I liked it. I was amazed by all the cool things you can do with simple code. Even better: I could also implement my graphic design skills to make nice looking websites. It was very fun at first but learning started to feel lonely, so I’m lucky the Front-end course happened around the same time. I am super happy to say that I have finally found my calling—one where I can use my graphic design skills as well!
