This woman completed many online courses to get occupied during ECQ period.
Are you bored of staying at home? Are you tired of doing the same stuff everyday? Because of the enhanced community quarantine, a lot are forced to stay at home, a lot had lost their jobs. Many people, even me, are anxious to go out and maybe visit the mall, enjoy a cup of coffee with friends or go back to work. But we are still lucky, even though we are stuck inside the house yet we are healthy and COVID free.
Paula Dahlia Mendoza from Makati feels the same way. She is also stuck at home, bored and also excited to go out like everyone of us. This 28-year-old lady is a financial advisor, motivational speaker and Head of Lazada Peers. Aside from the titles I mentioned, she is also the First Filipino Traveller that was featured 3 months in a row in History Channel.
Now she again wowed many for completing 20 Ivy League and Global University Courses. She said that she really want to be productive even at home. She is tired of watching Netflix and wanted to do something different. She lost her job like the rest because of the ECQ.
She also shared that she decided to take online classes so she can learn new things that she can maybe use in her new job. She stared her online classes 2nd week of April and ended 2nd week of May. She was able to complete all courses in a month. She was really serious about her classes and worked really hard to finish it all.
She mentioned that her favorite course was “Achieving Personal and Professional Success” from Ivy League, The Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania. Paula is also serious about topics like leadership, marketing, strategic management and personal development.
Just like the traditional and usual classes, they also have online quizzes, final exams, case study, peer assignments and lectures. The real professor in the video that teaches them and gives guides throughout the course.
Paula encourages everyone to be productive and enjoy your time at home. There are many ways to kill time. Learning a new hobby or learning new things like taking online courses can help you survive the ECQ boredom.
