The whole Bootcamp is 10 weeks long with a tuition fee of 3800 USD. Considering the fee, this is a challenge, but as I believe, there is always a way. With your support, I can gain experience that might change people's problems in a more innovative way. So it is like supporting me to support others. Besides that, I will be available to share my experience with you so that you can also learn what I learned.
