First Month with Jadu Fellowship Program

Hi, it’s been a few weeks since I started writing these blogs. But today’s post is a bit special, as I have completed my first month with Jadu Fellowship program. Although I could write about each and everything covered throughout this journey so far, I want to use this as an opportunity to express my opinion and thoughts on the things that I felt changing about myself.

But first, I would like to give an overview of our project:

My Intro Page hosted on GitHub

Yep, that’s right. We did our very first project, and this is what I built for myself. It was about making a short intro page using HTML and CSS. Everybody went very creative with this and built some cool stuff. It was really fun!

Now, moving on, let’s start discussing the rest of the stuff.

Being a member of a Community

Teamwork

I would like to share my experience of being a member of the Jadu Community. It was the very first experience for me to be a part of a community where we all learn from each other. And I must say, this is the perfect way to learn, and I mean it!

I just get overwhelmed sometimes when it comes to getting connected with other people. So I always thought that maybe learning alone should also be fine for most of my learning activities. But now I realize that this is not how it works in reality. I have learned many things in this short period that I might have not learned the other way.

So if you are someone who thinks the same, then I would suggest that maybe you should give it a shot, you will not regret it, I promise! :)

Writing stuff actually helps

Thoughts inside the brain

The other thing that I want to talk about is writing blogs. I am a techy kind of person and haven’t considered writing content or blogs etc., until now.

Starting with this program we needed to write a weekly reflection blog. It was something new to me. So I thought about it a lot, what should I write in my blogs. The first idea that came to my mind was that maybe I should give a summary of the week, highlight some of the points, and be done with it.

But the thing is that I didn’t want to add every technical detail in these blogs as many amazing people are writing on these topics who have a lot more knowledge on this kind of stuff. I just wanted to add my views and how I feel about it. So I am following this approach right now. And trust me, as Sir Saad Hamid said,

“Writing shapes your ideas and helps you restructure your thoughts.”

I am actually feeling that for myself. When I start preparing my blog, there’s a lot of stuff going on inside my head. All my thoughts and ideas are scattered all over my mind, and then I organize them in a more meaningful manner. I am truly enjoying this. It has helped me better understand a lot of things and have a clear mindset about many subjects.

There are so many things that I also want to add here, but I notice this is getting pretty long! So I don’t want to bore you with all that and would try to touch on them in the upcoming blogs. ;)

Thanks for taking the time and read all this!
