I first heard of SuaCode in 2019. I had never had any coding experinece before then and was looking for an opportunity to learn when a friend recommended the program to me. I learnt so much about coding, teamwork and leadership during the program and wrote about it in my college applications in the months following my graduation from the program, and the team was there for me once again, offering support and going further to write a letter of recommendation for me. I was subsequently accepted to MIT, something I never dreamed possible, and will always be grateful to SuaCode for being a part of this achievement. SuaCode has changed me a lot for the better, and in the past an honour to pay it forward. I have no doubt many more young people like me would unearth their full potential through the program and go on to change the world.
