After over a year of planning, the Discover Drupal 2021 student cohort began their journey in July! This year we have eight students. We will be highlighting each student who has opted in to share their personal journey. This month we welcome Nadia Faucon as our featured student! 

Nadia currently lives in Arizona and is completing the Discover Drupal site-builder pathway.  She joined the program with some experience using Drupal 7 as a website technician for 3 years. Below is a brief interview with Nadia.

What are you most excited about regarding this program?
The program is taught by a panel of Drupal experts like Mediacurent, Evolving, and Drupal Easy.  More than 20 Mentors at our disposition to help us learn and grow. Isn’t that amazing!!! I feel so lucky to be part of this program and grateful for the opportunity!!!!!!

Where would you like to take your career in Drupal?
I’d like to be able to do freelance work for Drupal agencies and give back to the Drupal community by sharing the knowledge I learned and learn more from other Drupal experts.
