Srwsht eagerly pointed out that her desire to learn and test new ways was a major motivator for participating and continuing in the Wecode bootcamps.
"Before participating in the Wecode bootcamp, I didn't even know what UX/UI was. I had a little basic experience in design, but in this field, even the name of the topic was new to me. What caused me to continue was my desire to learn, and what we were learning daily were all new things."
