Neat! So what would you say you learned from this?

:slightly_smiling_face:

So far, I think I have a different view.

I Honestly didn’t imagined I belonged to a couple of these community, like She code Africa, Americancorner, Mckinsey Forward Africa, and to think that I derive value from them.
There are a lot of community and I have a different view now.

Lesson learnt: Value is at the core and people always long for a sense of belonging, that feeling of being part of something, is priceless!

This worked! :blush:
Thank you for making me do this!

I took a lot of time because it was an interesting thing to do :blush:
