My Tech Story

Boluwatife Ayodeji

I currently work as a freelance Product Designer.

  • What prompted you to take on this particular role?

My strong passion for Product Design.

  • How long have you been working in your job role?

Over a year.

  • How did you get your tech role?

Networking, connections, and a decent portfolio.

  • How does your typical workday in your life play out?

For me, it’s music and work…I explore a lot, research, and surf the net.

  • What platform do you enjoy using in the course of working and what fascinates you about it?

That would be Figma.
This is because of its user-friendly interface, the community, and its amazing features.

  • What’s that one thing you wished could be taken off your role’s functions? Better put, a major thorn in your flesh…😅

A major thorn for me is how most gigs and companies tend to shy away from working with Designers based in Nigeria because of our rotten reputation.😔

  • What do you think would make you perform better at what you do? (You never can tell who’s reading this presently)

– A higher pay
– Better electricity
– Unlimited data.

  • Who do you look up to as a role model in your role and why?

God o.😁

  • Trying to not sound like that troublesome HR… Tell me, where do you see yourself in 5 years?

A much better and fulfilled place in my career than I am right now.

  • Techies are stereotyped as nonchalant; some even claim to work around the clock and have little time for socializing… How true🤷‍♂️?

I would say this depends on your personality.

I enjoy watching football.

  • What do you have to tell More Techies?

More Techies is a community like a family, resourceful and full of opportunities. I recommend More Techies to anyone out there wanting to start his or her journey as a techie or anyone already a techie.

More techies helped further clarify my path as a Designer. The Bootcamp was very helpful and I made my very first social media post on a design from there.

  • What golden secret can you tell someone trying to get into a similar role as yours to help them succeed?

Keep at it!

  • Do you have any milestone you think wouldn’t have been achieved?…but, alas! You smashed it!💪🏽🚀🤝

Case studies used to be a herculean task some months ago; looking back now, I’m grateful for growth.

  • Hey Techie✌🏻… being sincere, what else do you wish to tell us? You might see it happen/finally get someone inspired! You gerriit?😉👍🏼

Emphasizing this again – Keep at it!
It’s not going to be easy but it is relative; stay consistent and hardworking. Good luck!

  • Kindly share a link to your most active social platform. You may be the light someone has been waiting to connect with.

  • If you don’t mind, do you have works/products you’ve worked on that you want to showcase?

Yes, on Behance. Check it out here –

  • Before I leave you😊, what’s that one thing that’s going/working well for you ✅, that you can consider as a rose🌹, ever since you ventured into your field of tech?

Simply put, my consistency.
