He is TECUM.

HOW DID YOU GET INTO WEB DESIGNING?
It’s the act of creating something new, invent or polishing the old ,bringing about new idea and ways of solving issues and difficulties when it comes to ICT.
My Journey into the world of design started from tender age… There is this boss of mine that goes by the name Simplicity, when I was small I got Inspired by the art works of this Boss. My mother took me to him when I was still small but I couldn’t stay long, but I’ve always had it in mind that one day I want to become Great and be best.
When I finished my Senior Secondary School, I got Inspired by the Almighty God to pursue Technologies Ambition, My Mum registered me at Kabiyesi Atobatele Computer Institute at Gate Ibadan in the Year 2007 as A Computer Desktop Publisher, in which I was trained to become Computer literate. I left Kabiyesi atobatele Computer Institute to learn more at Kehlab Computer Institute where I learned how to handle Photocopy machine and some Printers.
I wanted to know more on Internet explorer, I then registered at Atinet Cyber Institute for Internet Technologies and Computer Networking and Trouble shooting in the year 2010.
WHAT HAS BEEN YOUR CHALLENGES AND HOW HAVE YOU BEEN ABLE TO SUPERCEDE IT?
Hmmmm Challenges, I faced a lot of challenges from different areas, the path I’m treading is a very challenging one butI give Gd all the glory cos he’s my greatest source of inspiration. The mere fact that I’m a school cert holder is also a challenge in itself but I also thank God because people hardly believe that my highest level of education is school cert because of the level of my professionalism. I’ve discovered myself and I realise that education is not all about going to school but thinking outside the box and being able to get inspired and also inspire people.
Like When I started working as a Computer Institute, I work at Zebullum Global Network Limited at Felele Challenge Ibadan, It was not that easy for me, I left the Job and I traveled to Lagos in the Year 2012 to stay with one pf My brother, Staying With this brother things was not that Ok for me simply because I was not in my Dream position I started looking for a Job in which I got Employed at Brain Child Multimedia. At Brainchild I was the Magazine Designer of Inspiration 101 Plus Magazine and the Computer specialist It was a challenging position for me because day by day I got Inspired. I traveled back to Ibadan and I still design the Magazine based on pay per work. I’ve had lot of challenges but I give thanks to God Almighty because with him I’ve been able to overcome all challenges.

TO THOSE THAT ARE JUST COMING UP WHAT DO YOU HAVE TO SAY?
My Word of encouragement to youngsters is that they should keep pushing and never stop to become a man or woman of your Dream because it doesn’t happen overnight. You just have to be persistent and believe in yourself. Never stop because one day you will be celebrated. And most Important Discover Your God given potentials and purpose.
And Believe me a Successful person is not a person that has the whole asset of the world BUT a person that create an enabling environment where other people benefit from. Lastly, learn to love and always seek God, be prayerful and be thankful, One day heaven will open for you and your Dreams will be fully accomplished…
