In the first few months in the refugee camp, all we could do was wait and see as we had no status. I found that very tough. Then I heard about Powercoders – a programming bootcamp for refugees. I applied and was accepted. This was the point when my life changed completely. At the end of the bootcamp, I was given an internship at Swisscom, where I gained experience working as a developer. I had completed a bachelor’s degree in IT back in Kabul, but starting at Swisscom was still a challenge. I had previously worked as an IT teacher and was only familiar with program language as a theory. Fortunately, my lovely work colleagues helped me to integrate very quickly. They were very patient with me!
