Alumni's feedback
I'm a graduate of two Beetroot Academy courses. First and foremost, the Academy made me realize what I would like to do and aim for. Here I found my passion, something truly mine, an activity I can spend hours doing for over a year and never get burnt out. I'm one of those people who want to cover all at once 😊. If you're like me, you know for sure how hard it is to stop and pursue one direction. I wanted my job to combine pleasure (of course), working from anywhere on the planet, a good salary, and a comfortable schedule. It didn't happen in a split-second, but I made it in the end. There are new horizons and goals ahead. If you really want it, you too can make it happen.
