Six months ago, we launched the Postman Student Expert training program to educate students and improve their API literacy through a self-paced curriculum created by the Postman team. Since then, we’ve welcomed thousands of bright students from across the globe into our student community and certified hundreds of outstanding Postman Student Experts. Now, for the Postman Student Experts who want to go the extra mile to use their knowledge and help educate their peers, we’re thrilled to launch the Postman Student Leader program. This program will provide students hands-on experience with public speaking, event planning, and teaching API skills—all so that they can make a greater impact on their campus.
The Postman Student Leader program allows students to take the next step after earning their Postman Student Expert badge. It further empowers them to become a leader on their campus promoting API literacy amongst their peers.
Official Postman Student Leaders receive:
- Access to Postman resources to organize events on their campus
- Postman Student Leader Badge
- Opportunities to speak and participate in Postman events
- Invitation to the online Postman Student Leader Program community
As Postman Student Leader Aanchal Mishra explains, “Being a Postman Student Leader also means being a mentor. And it’s really satisfying to help other tech enthusiasts learn the skills that will help them reach their goals.”
