I want to be a young woman who is uplifting others, passionate and working towards things that interest me.Sabena Adam
So in this article we would read the answers i got from Sabeena Adam, a first degree holder in Business Administration (Management Option) from Ghana Technology University College and currently a tutor and podcast host.
So below are the questions i posed to Sabeena and the answers she gave. I know this conversation will inspire you, so keep on.
TELL ME ABOUT YOURSELF
I have moved away from answering who is am, but rather who i want to become. I want to be a young woman who is uplifting others, passionate and working towards things that interest me. I am also a BSc holder in Business Administration. Currently I feel there are more things to be done and learnt so i find myself in diverse areas trying to learn different things to grow.
WHAT ARE YOUR LIFE GOALS AND HOW IS TECHNOLOGY HELPING YOU ACHIEVE THEM?
I am interested in changing the status quo especially in the Muslim community where the gap is huge and technology is providing the tools, connection and network of people to learn from and work with. I am inspired by projects and activities in others countries for which i try my possible best to implement them here.
DESCRIBE A PERSONAL EXPERIENCE IN TECHNOLOGY THAT HAS SHAPED/AFFECTED YOUR LIFE POSITIVELY
So actually there are two happenings that has shaped my life with technology. The first being my time with iSpace (a Tech Hub in Ghana) when i was in the formation stage of my social enterprise Modest Code. The ability to build websites and share to the world your thoughts and experience is just interesting.
The second time, was during my time in School at Ghana Technology University College, where we did Management Information Systems as a course and everything came full circle regarding the extent and reach of Technology. The course touched on Information Intelligence, Data Management to make profit and others.
HOW DO YOU THINK CAN BE USED TO AFFECT YOUR IMMEDIATE COMMUNITY POSITIVELY?
In diverse way, but for starters young people have to fully harness the potential of technology and not only focus on just taking selfies and texting. Addressing on social media, should not end there but rather we should be able to gather ourselves away from “online” and address these same issues “offline”.
HOW LONG DO YOU THINK GHANA/AFRICA HAS TO CATCH UP TO THE WORLD OF TECHNOLOGY?
I would like to answer this from my personal point of view, it will take some time for me to catch up but for Ghana or Africa, we have a long way to go. But for Ghana, until we understand the power of technology we would remain stagnant and always be on the receiving end. The solution to this would be for young people to fully embrace technology and that would help us in the few years to come.
WHICH TECH PRODUCT FASCINATES YOU THE MOST AND WHY?
It has to be Apple Products. Apple products are minimal in design and functionality to me. My first experience with Mac, was a bit wired but after i got hold of the ways around it, i fell in love with what Apple Products provides. The picture quality of iPhone have also helped me with recording my YouTube videos and as well the gadget has made it simple for me in my Podcast recordings.
This is where i mention a bunch of tech products and services for my wonderful guest to pick one in a matter of seconds. So lets see what Sabena picked from the lot.
- Instagram (Chose this)
- Bolt (Chose this)
- Troski (Commercial Vehicle)
- iPhone (Chose this)
- Facebook Messenger (Chose this)
My last words would be in a form of question. Why are symbols (comma, semicolon, etc) important in programming languages. Because i find it weird and beautiful at the same time that such simple stuffs could prevent your code from running.
In conslusion, i would first say this:
Sabena would be looking forward to get some answers in the comment section. So lets help her out and finally thank you very much for reading my first first interview.
