Hi Antwoine! Can you tell us about your background and how you came to Thrive?
My journey began as a helpdesk technician at my alma mater, Virginia Union University. My early interest in Cloud technology led me to volunteer to manage a significant PBX to VoIP project. This experience gave me a valuable boost in self-confidence and a sense of belonging in this field. Although the project was a success, I wasn’t initially considering a career as a project manager.
During that period, I was fully committed to being a Cloud engineer and had no plans to shift my focus. My transition into project management happened quite unexpectedly. I had the unique ability to both engineer and manage my projects. The company I was working for at the time recognized this skill set and approached me to assist in managing projects for other engineers. I agreed without hesitation. It was at that moment that I realized working on a project was significantly more straightforward than engineering, and I never looked back.
