Meet an inspiring young man, Denzel, who has shown perseverance and hard work can lead to a better life. Raised by both parents and the last born in a family of three, Denzel completed his high school education at Ruaraka High School in 2019. It was a moment he vividly remembered as a glimpse of what the real world would be like. Like most high school graduates, he was unsure where to start, but he dreamt of furthering his education. Unfortunately, financial constraints meant he had to put those dreams on hold.


But Denzel refused to let that hold him back. He sought support from his elder brother and got a job at his gym. They worked together for four years, and with determination and effort, Denzel saved enough money to start a retail shop in his local area. Unfortunately, financial challenges continued to plague him.

One day, while browsing the internet, Denzel came across a post by the Danish Refugee Council on their social media pages about Digital Skills Training, and he saw it as a fantastic opportunity to learn something new. Denzel recalled, “I had always admired people who worked remotely but did not know how to get into the digital space myself.” He applied online, and within a week, he got invited for an interview. Three weeks later, he received an invitation to a meeting for successful candidates, where he got all the necessary details about the training.


Denzel was excited about the training, especially the opportunity to learn about digital skills. He loved the interactive nature of the training, especially for data annotation, which required him to repeat tasks in front of other trainees to demonstrate his understanding. He found that it helped him stay focused during the training, and he encourages other young people to think outside the box and take advantage of the opportunities that come their way.


Aside from the technical skills, Denzel also learned essential soft skills such as proposal writing and communication. Denzel hopes to become an expert in Digital Marketing and is actively working towards that goal. As he strives towards his goal, Denzel works as a freelancer on online platforms specializing in AI and machine learning and digital marketing. “I am grateful for the training, which has helped me get employment and opened up a new world of opportunities.”


Denzel’s journey has taught him the value of hard work, determination, and seizing opportunities. “With the right skills and mindset, I believe that focus and commitment can help us overcome financial challenges and achieve our dreams, paving the way for a better future.” His story is an inspiration to young people who may be facing similar challenges. With focus, commitment, and the right skills, anything is possible.
