"Hi, I'm Roneth Jaro and through the ACS Foundation I was given the opportunity to work in IBM for 6 months.

In retrospective, I'm very thankful for the opportunity that ACS Foundation has given me as it has equipped me with the skills and knowledge that I can apply to further my professional career."
