Let’s meet Peter Adeyemo, a shining example of how a change in career direction can lead to remarkable achievements. Starting out as a Sales Representative, Peter’s journey took a technology-infused turn, bringing him closer to his dreams through the Fellowship at The Bulb Africa.

“Greetings, I am Peter Adeyemo, a graduate of Fellowship Cohort 4” he begins, his journey reflecting his determination. Initially in sales, he felt a pull towards the world of technology. He took it upon himself to learn, but soon realized the importance of formal training and certifications. This realization set him on a path to discover The Fellowship program. He started in October 2022 and completed his training in March 2023. It's a 6-month program.

This fellowship turned out to be a game-changer. Not only did it offer skill enhancement, but it also provided funding, an important support that came through Pledges Inc.’s collaboration with The Bulb Africa.

“The program did not only provide me with an avenue to enhance my skills but also provided me with the funding required to enroll in the program,” a grateful Peter acknowledges.

With his sights set on becoming a certified Frontend Engineer, Peter’s determination aligned with this opportunity. Going from sales to technology might sound unusual, but Peter’s story emphasizes the impact of focused efforts and the right support. Today, he’s actively learning and gaining experience as a Frontend Engineer intern at SENIOR.

Peter’s journey speaks to the idea that dreams can be realized with the right mix of opportunity and dedication. It highlights how programs like The Bulb’s Fellowship program can nurture talent and enable career shifts.

Each line of code Peter writes is a step closer to his aspirations, a testament to his unwavering commitment.

“I am thankful for the opportunity to be propelled closer to my dreams.”
