Hey bugs! I have some exciting news to share with all of you. After months of careful consideration and planning, I am thrilled to announce that I have embarked on a new chapter in my cybersecurity journey. I am now a mentor on MentorCruise, a platform that enables me to share my knowledge, skills, and experiences with aspiring cybersecurity professionals. This decision comes after witnessing the remarkable success of my previous course, #hackintocybersec, where four individuals secured coveted positions in the cybersecurity industry. Inspired by their achievements, I spent an entire year immersed in thoughtful reflection, designing, learning, and preparing myself to become a mentor, determined to guide others who share the same passion for entering the world of cybersecurity.

Reflecting on the #hackintocybersec Course

Looking back, the #hackintocybersec course was a turning point in my career. It was an intensive program aimed at equipping individuals with the necessary knowledge and skills to enter the cybersecurity field. The course attracted ambitious learners who were eager to break into this fascinating and challenging domain. Witnessing their growth, seeing their enthusiasm, and ultimately witnessing four of them securing jobs in cybersecurity gave me a profound sense of fulfillment. It ignited a fire within me to extend my reach and help even more aspiring professionals achieve their dreams.

A Year of Reflection and Preparation

Following the success of the #hackintocybersec course, I took a step back to reflect on my own journey and to identify the best way to transfer my skills and experiences to others. I embarked on a personal mission to enhance my mentoring abilities and design a comprehensive program that would provide aspiring cybersecurity professionals with the guidance they need to navigate the complexities of the industry. I spent countless hours studying various mentoring methodologies, attending workshops and conferences, and immersing myself in real-world scenarios to fine-tune my expertise. This intensive year of learning and growth has equipped me with the tools necessary to guide others effectively and set them on a path towards success.
