My Tech Story

Chisom Ogene

I am presently a UI/UX Designer still in training. I previously worked as a Customer Service Representative in a financial institution for 2 years and 9 months.

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

I’m just a few weeks into UI/UX Design.

  • How did you get your tech role?

More Techies inspired that passion.

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

I am currently learning UI/UX Design and not working; but when I was, it was too busy that I barely had time for myself.

  • Every role has its hurdles. What are yours and how do you troubleshoot them?

Well, as a newbie I have some challenges; initially, I didn’t know how to use mockups, but the challenge (#7DaysofDesign) spurred me to do further research on how to add mockups to a design.

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

I am transitioning into tech; getting an internship opportunity would be a great opportunity for me.

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

Everyone in the tech industry inspires me, they are all pushing me to do better.

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

Doing better for myself, succeeding in my dream job, and traveling around the world.

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

Partially true, depends on the person.

Going to the movies, hanging out to a fancy restaurant, and to the beach.

  • What impact has More Techies had on you and your role?

Good learning experience, the Bootcamp spurred me into learning more.

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

Find what you have passion for and put practice into it.

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

It is this UI/UX design.

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

I want an internship-paid job opportunity in this field; it will help me to grow.

  • Kindly share a link to your most active social platform. You may just 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. I’m a newbie still actively learning; however, I recently participated in the just concluded #7DaysofDesign that More Techies organized, and below is the link to my works.

  • 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?

I love designing and I love being creative.
