Briget’s Uncommon Story

When Briget applied to join Uncommon, she was young and recently married with a child of her own. 

She supported her family by selling notebooks and ice-pops on the side of the road not far from the local primary and secondary schools.  

We were inspired by her entrepreneurial spirit. When asked how she’d support her family if she were to join our full-time Bootcamp, she replied that she had already agreed with her husband that he would take over their stall so¬†she could pursue her education.

After completing our crash courses, Briget chose to specialize in Digital Marketing and she wasmatched with a Mentor working for a fin-tech startup in Israel.

Upon graduating from Uncommon, we hired Briget as a junior Digital Marketing instructor where she taught our next group of students, developed her leadership skills and further explored the world of Digital Marketing. 

After finishing our Resume and Interview Prep workshop, Briget began applying for jobs. With multiple offers, Briget was able to negotiate the deal that was best for her and her family.

We couldn’t be more proud!
