Working at Inkfish was an eye-opener and a learning curve. I never thought that I would be connected by a click of a button to so many brains on a daily basis, thanks to technology. As a Zimbabwean, organising papers to go and work/study in another country is a nightmare.. Working from home was the best arrangement for me. Though I had challenges here and there, of shutdowns/power/internet etc due to the political unrest facing my country at the moment. I had to always be hopeful and keep the faith. Being bold enough to overlook all the challenges, working hard in order to break through to get what you have to in order to survive.
Nevertheless It didn’t lessen my drive to work and do what was required of me. It was however uplifting to chat and work with the Inkfish global team.
The working environment entails being in the comfort of your own home, in a relaxed fashion.
When all have been said and done count me in, I will definitely come back if the doors will still be open.
