Final day of techie youth

My overall thoughts on the program is that it was easy to be able to work and be able to do other responsibilities I had to do while still be able to work. The pros is that I think techie youth helps with teaching people the necessity of having people skills to get a job and the different dynamics of being an entrepreneur. The cons is that some assignments I just could not understand. Another con is that I wished for the quiz it would show which ones you got right and which ones were wrong which was difficult because even if you needed one more answer or one less answer you would still fail the whole quiz. I am glad I was able to work with techie youth this summer and hopefully since I now have the hang of the program next summer I’ll be able to comprehend and get a better grasp of what to complete.
