Mentoring – Meet our very first Intern!
Meet Angela, 25 years old, and originally from the Philippines. Angela arrived in the UAE around 5+ years ago. She has been working 12 hour shifts, 6 days a week for the last 5 years, with a minimal salary and the feeling of “entrapment”, wanting to do something different with her life, but stuck inside the endless cycle of working long hours, feeling stuck and depressed, and never having any money of her own, as the little that she does make is sent back to her family to support them financially.
We thankfully met Angela, when our paths crossed by the Grace of God! We bonded immediately and we knew that something great can come from this introduction. Angela had a very very eager and positive attitude towards learning & studying, mostly about the LORD her God, the Bible and all Christian related studies. She was reading and consuming new Godly information at a crazy pace, her hunger for truth clearly visible. She read the following books through (some even twice) in a matter of a couple of weeks: Instruments in the Redeemer’s Hands by Paul Tripp; You Can Change by Tim Chester; God and Money by John Cortines and Gregory Baumer; Christian History Made Easy & How we Got the Bible by Timothy Jones, to name but a few. She received her very own Bible for the first time in her life, she gave her life to the LORD Jesus, was spiritually born-again, baptized and are now a free and saved child of the Living God – Hallelujah…
We then added some additional studies for her in preparation of joining our company as an intern and ultimately running her own successful online business. She completed the below professional free online courses from top class international universities and achieved really good grades:
- Becoming an Entrepreneur, by Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT)
- Business Foundations, by The University of British Columbia
- Introduction to Marketing, by the University of Edinburgh
- Fundamentals of Digital Marketing, by the University of Maryland
- Fundamentals of Digital Marketing, Social Media, and E-Commerce, by Wharton University of Pennsylvania
She also completed another Social Media Online course by Katie Wight:
She then moved on to learn about Print On Demand, and have completed the below free online courses to study this subject (to name only a few), along with training on how to use some free online creative software tools such as Canva and Placeit:
- Why you should start a POD business in 2021
- Full POD Tutorial for Beginners 2021
- Start A T-Shirt Business for FREE at Home Online for POD
- What is POD and is it worth it
- Everything you need to know about Redbubble
- Redbubble Tutorial (2021) Starting a Redbubble Store From Scratch
She is now ready to start applying all her fantastic learning. We have appointed Angela to start marketing and running our Print On Demand account for us. She has successfully learned how to create a Facebook and Instagram Business Account, a Facebook Shop, an Instagram Shop and a Google account for marketing these beautiful art products online. She is continuing her training in content creation, copyrighting, and social media advertising.
We will also be signing an official Affiliate Marketing agreement with Angela so that she can start to earn commission on every sale that comes from her marketing efforts. We are extremely proud of Angela for what she has achieved over the last few months, and we cannot wait to see how she will grow and develop over the next few months and years to ultimately run her own very successful online business and gaining her financial freedom.
“Pure and unblemished religion [as it is expressed in outward acts] in the sight of our God and Father is this: to visit and look after the fatherless and the widows in their distress, and to keep oneself uncontaminated by the [secular] world.” – James 1:27
“But you shall remember [with profound respect] the Lord your God, for it is He who is giving you power to make wealth, that He may confirm His covenant which He swore (solemnly promised) to your fathers, as it is this day.” – Deuteronomy 8:18
