First of all, no matter I write about my experience about this course, you need to experience it yourself, this is a totally different place. Before I attended the course, I used to follow Cyber Struggle and its organizations, get admired and, envy those who were there. This is because it was not like an ordinary training activity, it was totally different; I dreamed about it, I was so excited about it, wondering what they do in the training, how is it possible for them to develop so much.
As a result of my endless research, I learned that this training is not something that fall into my lap; I would need to push my limits. The thing that attracted me here the most was pushing my limits; I was crazy about it since I was sure of myself and, I wanted to see what I was really capable of. You notice it during the training, you see what you are really capable of. This is because you are given a topic about which you have no idea and, you are expected to accomplish it. Under normal circumstances, once would say “how is possible?”, We haven’t done such a thing before. You should explain it first”. But not in this place. You see that you could learn so much details even about a topic you had no idea before. As a matter of fact, this is case.
Ordinary training doesn’t push you, everything is available, and this doesn’t add you anything. You learn how to learn; you learn how to solve the problems, and how to produce solution. You are all your own and, this makes you self-confident of an unbelievable level. There are people over here, who work for you more than you do and, convey their knowledge without any hesitation. There are people, who listen to your problems and give supports, producing solutions and, guiding you in the right direction. I used to feel self when I went to the office at every weekend because I was together with the Cyber Struggle team and, my teammates.
And the most important rule is to be a team. It is not possible to see the last week if you don’t team up. You understand what a team is and what is the consequences of failing to be a team. You see what you are capable of, who you are and, what mistakes you make, so that you know yourself and, this place lets you understand who you really are. This place is a simulation environment. You see such problems you would face in your real life.
It was one of the most beautiful experiences in my life. This is because what I expected at the beginning of the training is not only a technical improvement but also a mental improvement, opening up my horizon and, understanding different points of view, and it has absolutely satisfied my expectations. It was so satisfying that I am not like before. It changed my old habits, changing and enriching my perspective on life not only in the meaning of security.
I was amazed when I heard a person who had no knowledge before the training would improve so much at the end of 10 weeks. But I saw that there is a huge effort behind this development. I saw that how it possible to raise by giving of your best fearlessly without any sleep during this period of 10 weeks. This is completely depending on you, if you are here to be free from prejudices and push your limits, everything will be fine. You need to push your limits, you let yourself into the flow of the training, do what you are told and then see your improvement, and how it is possible for you to draw a new roadmap for your life.
And after all these beautiful things, Cyber Struggle becomes your family, and you don’t want to leave it anymore. This is a new item I have added to my list of the best decisions I have made in my life. There are still many things to write about, but you need to experience it yourself to understand it. I would like to than the Cyber Struggle family and my teammates for everything.
So glad I have you!
