Loise Okoro is an agritech degree holder turned customer support specialist. Her career began in the nonprofit sector and grew to include roles in sales, tech assistance and customer support, both in her home country of Nigeria and abroad in the United States. She is currently taking ALX’s Data Analytics programme – her second ALX programme so far – and is a Fellow in The ROOM‘s talent community, working to pay it forward by creating her own platform to equip and empower other aspiring data-driven administrators.
One of the hard things I’m working on is learning Data Analytics to enhance my customer support skills. I have a strong growth mindset and am open to quickly learning and adapting to new environments. The ROOM’s talent community has pushed me to go the extra mile, and with this push, I believe I will succeed in whatever I desire to achieve.
My proudest achievement is completing an ALX programme successfully and becoming a Fellow at The ROOM. When I first heard about ALX, I had doubts in the efficiency of online training. As a curious learner, I took the leap of faith and applied to see what the programme was about and what opportunities could come from it. It was a lengthy and thorough application process, but I passed and was accepted into the programme. I’m so happy I took the bold step to apply, and I’m so glad I didn’t give up along the way. My doubts about the efficacy of online training were proved wrong, as my peers and I have been successfully trained in the intensive programme.
Failure has taught me that not rising up to continue after failing is the primary failure. Now, giving up is not even an option, but rising and persisting until I win will always be my goal.
I aspire to venture into entrepreneurship and administrative skills training, expanding my offerings across many companies. I also want to give back to my community and pay it forward by centralising access to administrators via my website and training professional customer support specialists free of charge.
Before you leave this world, make sure you leave a good mark on the sands of time.
