"Good day, I’m Millicent! My data analytics and data science journey started with my Bachelor’s degree in Applied Physics from the University of the Philippines. I worked as an ICT Business Analyst in 2018 afterwards, but then I felt ready for a career shift. After upskilling and getting a master degree in data science in 2019, I landed a job that paid 2x of my basic salary. By 2021, I’m earning 3x of my basic salary from back then. I never regretted my decision."
Millicent Singson
Mc Gee Alda Acebedo
My career started at a call center — for two years, I worked on the line and answered calls. Then I worked at the contact center for 7 years as a Level 3 Technical Support agent. However, I wanted to develop more skills and move up to a position that would give me more pay and new challenges or problems to solve.
Without even realizing that, I switched from being almost directionless to discovering my calling. The more I learned about data, the more I felt drawn to it. Fast forward, I took the Refocus course, and the rest is history.
I chose Refocus because of its career center and the support from mentors. And when I started studying, I realized that these were not empty words. Community managers helped me with all the difficulties, and I gradually began to understand more and more complex things-from Excel and SQL to Python even. I couldn't wait to finish the course and start looking for a full-time job in a new specialty, but things happened quicker than I expected.
A new career round
In 2012, I got married, and my wife was offered a job abroad. Together, we decided to start from scratch, leave our old lives, and move to Oman. For the next 7 years, I did administrative work for a small computer company: installing software on computers and setting up networks for schools. This is where I first got acquainted with Excel. Then I learned to work only with basic formulas and diagrams, but my knowledge was already progressing.
Jobless for two years
After I quit my last job, I couldn’t find anything stable for a while. For two years, my entire income depended on all kinds of side hustles, which developed my analytical and marketing skills but also did not give me any stability. My wife’s contract ended, which made us decide to move back to the Philippines.
It was at this moment that I came across Refocus' advertisement. It seemed to me that data analysis was exactly what I wanted to do. I like to sort things out, find solutions, and analyze in general. It looked like a profession that could help me develop my career and provide for my family. So I made the decision!
An offer that changed my life
After 3 months of taking the course, a friend recommended a position in Technical Support at an American company. The offer seemed interesting to me, but at the same time, another open vacancy-a data analyst one-seemed much more enjoyable. But then I thought it was still too early to think about it — I needed to finish my studies, get a certificate, and gain experience first. That’s why I applied for the Technical Support Engineer post and went on an interview, which seemed successful to me.
I asked if there is a possibility for me to move to the Data Analyst position once I get a certificate from Refocus. To my surprise, the HR immediately relayed my question to the SME department — and I was offered an interview for this position. And, believe it or not, I succeeded!
Combining work, study, and family
Now my schedule is super busy, but it’s so worth it! I can finally develop and earn enough to provide my family with a comfortable life. My family is my constant motivation for what I do. I am ready to constantly improve myself. I’m sure anything is possible if you have a goal!
How I managed to pay for the course
I saw Refocus' Facebook ad, which popped up several times. Although I didn’t know anything about digital marketing, I signed up for a free webinar on how to become a marketer from scratch and earn more. It was a great opportunity for me, so I grabbed it. But then I realized that the course was pricey, and I had no money. I thought "It doesn’t matter if I don’t have money. I can just try." So I registered my name.
Last year, I was an unemployed full-time mom with zero knowledge of digital marketing. Of course, I didn’t have extra money for enrolling in a course, but I was determined to pursue something for myself anyway. I always knew that I had a place somewhere. This place appeared to be the Refocus Digital Academy.
The first breakthrough
In module 2, we were required to make LinkedIn and Indeed accounts, which I never had before. So I told myself: since I’m paying for this course, I’m going to make everything I’m supposed to. I created my accounts and followed every instruction from the module.
Then 3 days later, someone reached out to me via LinkedIn and offered me a job with a salary of ₱45,000 per month. I was shocked! Unfortunately, I couldn’t accept the offer because it wasn’t a remote job. Just imagine: I could’ve paid all my Refocus' fees in just one salary! It was very motivating.
The job offer that changed everything
If I could do this, anybody can
When I got the job, I wanted to help other people like me who had zero knowledge of marketing but wanted to start. So I started looking for people on the Refocus page who were interested in enrolling in the course. I reached out to them, and some of them messaged me. I had a bunch of requests and passed their contact info to Refocus' community managers. Then I got the idea to introduce Refocus to my boss and scheduled a meeting with him and the community manager. It would be great if all my colleagues had the opportunity to learn through Refocus' course.
That first offer was just the beginning! A month and 19 days later, I got hired as a graphic designer, but then they also thought that I was suitable for the HR associate position because of my new knowledge and skills.

Lessons I gained while taking the course
My main point is: always do your best. I always say to my colleagues: slow but steady. You can achieve anything you put your mind to.
I had no idea that there was an installment program, so those who don’t have enough cash or credit card limit can still enroll in this program. I’m very grateful to Kaye, the career consultant. She never doubted that I could do it, even though the fee was a five-digit number. She helped me with the installment service, and I started studying a month before I made the first payment.
As an HR associate, I’m responsible for conducting initial interviews with candidates. In the second part of my job, I’m a graphic designer for our projects. I also have a side hustle because our boss told us that it’s completely OK. In my second job, I also interview candidates.
Now, I earn and pay my monthly fee to Refocus. I’ll always remember how our community manager Steven encouraged me — he was positive that I could do anything. And I’m really grateful to the community team for checking on our progress and inspiring us to do our best.
I also created a Facebook page for those who want to find a job. I didn’t expect that it will grow to 976 members in just 5 days!
I’m not ashamed to promote Refocus because it already offers all the benefits people are looking for in education. And now I want to share my biggest accomplishment.
When you apply course modules in real life, they become 20 times bigger. I was able to use them almost immediately, which helped me quickly find a job. Now, I can manage my time on my own terms. This is the lifestyle of a digital nomad that we are all pursuing in this industry!

Testimonials

I’ve been a graphic artist for 10 years. During the pandemic, business became really slow, so I decided to take online courses. I found Refocus and did my research on what a Data Analyst job is. I really liked the fact that I’d be working with data and wanted to take on the challenge. The modules are arranged by difficulty, making it easy to learn. Plus, community managers are very approachable, and I get support any time I need it. I’m currently finishing up module 3 and can’t wait for the next Module.

Jay Anne

I’m currently working as a developer and I always felt I needed additional skills to add to my resume, so I enrolled in the Data Analytics course. I’ve already finished all 3 assignments in Module 3 and I’m so excited. I wish I knew about Refocus earlier because I could have done all my projects better, and it would have been much easier if I had the knowledge I’ve gained from the course before.

Elisha Alfeche

I’m currently finishing my last year in college, and I’m able to combine this with my studies at Refocus just fine because I can create my own schedule. I’m really enjoying it, and I’m even planning to pursue my Masters in this field. I’m in Module 3 right now, and I’m even more excited to learn more because Refocus gave me such a unique opportunity.

Prince Abraham Gacusan

Joining Refocus was the best option to find a proper source of income. I was quite surprised because one of the weaknesses I had before was working with computers. But after I discovered Refocus and took the Data Analytics Course, I learned how to easily adapt and use the power of computers to my advantage. I am currently almost halfway through Module 3. The lessons are getting more and more exciting, and I can’t wait to start my career as a data analyst.

Paul Uy

I worked in a judicial academy for 19 years and was at a point in my life where I did not know what to do next. And then I came across Refocus. My whole view of online learning has changed drastically. Refocus has made the videos so interesting that it felt like I knew the speaker on a personal level. I am in Module 3.1 now, working on the home assignment. I am enjoying the discussions with my cohort on how to better understand SQL. I am proud of myself for wanting to learn more and more each day because of my experience with Refocus.
