Episode 5: An Immigrant's Dream and Teaching Online
In this episode, Joeel and Natalie interview Paulo Dichone. Paulo is a self-proclaimed programming geek who fell in love with coding when he got to college, even through he grew up in a small village in Mozambique, Africa where he didn’t have access to computers. Paulo’s opportunity to attend high school for one year in the United States instilled a dream within him to move to America. Through a series of almost miraculous events, Paulo immigrated to the United States to attend college, where he discovered his love of coding and received a Bachelors Degree in Computer Science and got a job building Android and iOS apps. The ability to thrive through uncertainty that Paulo developed living in Mozambique and overcoming the challenges of moving to a new country, prepared him to be a natural entrepreneur. His story is empowering and shows that relentless tenacity and believing in a dream no matter how much stands in your way is the true meaning of the American Dream.
