CoPS has been life-changing for me and fulfilling. After the first month of the training, I could fix my mom's electric iron. She was so impressed and excited she kept saying to the neighbours my daughter is an engineer
I have gained a lot of knowledge from the programme. I can troubleshoot and repair some electrical appliances now from the knowledge I have acquired. So far, I could troubleshoot and fix my faulty cooking range at home.
Even though I studied a business and management course, I knew I could see myself in the engineering field someday, and although there are few female engineers, I still feel happy and confident about it. So, seeing this CoPS opportunity through my pastor, I knew now that I could actualize my dreams of becoming an engineer.
