Hey there everybody! I am making my way through being accepted into the AWS Community Builders Program. I am honored to be selected amongst all of these applications.
AWS Community Builder
All of the paperwork is signed and I am ready to go. I am very happy to receive this opportunity. As some of you reading this know, I am in the Ohio Means Jobs Cuyahoga County (Cleveland, Ohio), workforce development program. This program has paid for my 2 AWS certifications. I have mailed my training specialist, the social media manager and the training provider thank you cards for helping me get here. They matter so much to me.
Receiving this AWS Community Builder is a very big honor and shines the light on how white-collared professionals can use workforce development training to upskill and reskill themselves. I have also created an Adventures in Workforce Development YouTube playlist showing you a behind the scenes of what you can expect.
I also want to thank you the reader and all my YouTube family for their support. Social media links are a part of the AWS application. I have put my two AWS certification videos in there. Even though I have 530 YouTube subscribers, AWS seen value in my little channel.

Add AWS on top of Azure
Plot twist! This time last week I was studying AZ-500. Now I’ve switched to AWS machine learning since I am in the machine learning track (I have had an epiphany about how studying for this will crossover to AI-100).
I will also focus on AWS SysOps administrator since the old version will retire July 26, 2021. This gives me over 2 months to eke it out. I have been in this position before last year with Solutions Architect Associate. I do think that passing this SysOps also updates my Cloud Practitioner and Solutions Architect Associate. I will also check to see if AWS machine learning specialty updates my other two AWS certifications too.
Just remember that change is the only constant.
Revamping resume, LinkedIn and personal brand
I am getting a lot of mileage out of adding AWS Community Builder to my resume, LinkedIn and personal brand. I will start seeing how I come up in LinkedIn search. I do think that there will be a spike in interest. I have also shot a video for my LinkedIn community to learn more about this revamp.

Receiving over 530 YouTube subscribers
I have received over 530 (as of now) YouTube subscribers. As I have mentioned earlier in #1 that my YouTube channel has helped me land my AWS Community Builder opportunity.
I want you who is reading this to aspire to do the same thing. Video marketing is huge and the highest converting medium. You can do video in almost anything. I just want you to be able to leverage your knowledge into expanding personal and professional opportunities.

Receiving 2000 Twitter Followers
Thank you Twitter Family! I have crossed the 2000-follower threshold. Twitter is my most favorite social medium. I have been on there for over 13 years. Furthermore, my community has supported my 2-year Projectized project management livestream show run every Monday through Friday 5:30pm EDT.
