What is your proudest moment in your career? 

When a learner I trained was offered a job. This person has had a very low self-esteem and lack of confidence. He had lost faith in everything and were not even applying for jobs. I encouraged him, motivated him and used his services to scribe for other learners. I helped him to build his confidence by conducting mock interviews with him.
