Why did I choose to continue my education?
The Covid-19 pandemic has halted many aspects of people’s lives including my own; however, as I await on job opportunities, I thought I would take this time for myself to engage in online learning and develop more skills that could potentially make me more marketable in the field of Journalism.
Featured below: Certificates that I achieved through online learning.
