My Name is Degan Mohamed Jamac, I studied Hospitality and Customer Management at Hano Academy for three months after which I sat for the examination and was awarded a certificate. I’m now working as a waitress at Karmel Restaurant in Mogadishu. I never thought I can study this course and compete with the boys in the job market. Hano Academy encouraged me to learn the skills and pushed me through to realize my dream of being independent lady. I enjoyed and learnt a lot from the course.
Thanks to God, today I’m able to earn money from the skills I learned and support my family. I appreciate Hano Academy and USAID for the support they gave me and other needy Somali youths and lastly I thank Karmel Restaurant for offering me a job opportunity.
