OVERCOMING OBSTACLES

HOW DO I STOP ALLOWING MY PAST TO MAKE ME BITTER AND FORGIVE PEOPLE WHO HAVE HURT ME? 

 

We have all probably heard of the ancient story of Joesph and his jealous brothers as kids. I’ll be the first to admit – I never really paid it much mind nor understood the deeper meaning until recently.

To cut the long story short, Joesph was a boy who because of the jealousy of his brothers was sold into slavery, imprisoned and separated from his family for 22 years. Finally when released, becomes the second in command in Egypt which was when he finally reconnects with his family.

COMPUTER PROGRAMMER JIDE ADE TALKS WALKING AWAY FROM GANG CULTURE AND FIGHTING FOR HIS EDUCATION.

 

Jide Ade is a young and driven computer programmer who is dedicated to helping provide a platform for other young people, to achieve success. He currently runs his own IT Company called “Iron Ltd” – where he develops websites, apps and databases for clients.

Although he originally wanted to be a lawyer and hated programming, it was his love for computers that led him in a different direction. Whilst at university, his own lecturer told him he was a programming dunce and would never be able to get the grasp of it. Even though he would ask for help and on several occasions ask to meet up with his lecturer for guidance, he was just never given the time of day.

Despite the lack of support, he not only managed to graduate with a 1st bachelor’s degree in Computer Science in 2013 but has also gone on to do a Master’s degree – which he will graduate from this summer (2015).

We sat down with Jide for more insight on his journey and his advice to the many young people who can relate to his story:
