Qays, an MTL Fellow, graduated from our Virtual ACE Programme in July of 2020 and has since found success. Here’s his story.

At my previous workplace, my manager would rarely, if ever, have time to meet with me and give feedback on my work. This led to me becoming more detached from the work I was doing and greatly impacted the enjoyment I felt from my workplace.

When I joined the Virtual ACE Programme, I learnt how to take pride in my work for the sake of the work itself and the time I have put into it. I also feel like I have practised skills on how to be a responsible employee and I can now proactively make changes to my working habits or the working environment when necessary.

Now I am a data analyst at an Insurance company, and I am happy and fulfilled in the word that I do. I am fortunate to be surrounded by a team of excellent colleagues and an amazing boss. The skills I gained from Making the Leap has made wonders in developing my confidence in the workplace.

Thank you so much, Making The Leap!!!
