Being in his youth, Abdul Majid embraces his life with curiosity and boldness. Abdul Majid is one of the Rumah Belajar YCAB alumni in 2020. Abdul is a young, aspiring tech enthusiast impressed with Japanese technology and innovation. Like many others who see the huge potential in the world of computers, Abdul has always dreamt about working in Japan, a country with a high level of adoption of advanced technologies.
His desire to learn about coding and programming was hindered by the lack of education funds and this made him a self-taught learner. His interest in the world of computers has been his favorite since high school. “My parents didn’t know I liked coding, they knew I liked to play on the computer. I learned everything about computer science from the internet until I grasped the knowledge itself,” he said.
Pursuing the dream of becoming a programmer is not an easy journey for Abdul Majid. However, the eldest of 4 brothers did not give up, he persevered and was selected to join the scholarship program by YCAB and Hacktiv8. In the span of 3 months, Abdul was taught basic programming skills singlehandedly by the CEO of Hacktiv8.
“This boot camp changed my mindset that anything is possible with endless possibilities, how to manage my time wisely, accept that challenges are not all bad, rise from despair because everything has a solution and that failure is not the end of everything. I am utterly grateful to YCAB for this opportunity,” said Abdul Majid.
After graduating from boot camp, he worked at PT. Sigma Asia Technology as a Frontend Developer for a year. Now, Abdul Majid continues his dream and works at the company Kebun Technology, a subsidiary of President-one in Nagoya Japan. While working in this Japanese company, he has been thriving and his company wants to move him to Japan. Now, he is being prepared for the transfer and he will take the N4 test to be able to certify the Japanese language and fly to Japan next year.
