Udara Jay – Founder and Creator at Alcamy
We wanted to create a space where self-learners can thrive by sharing and discussing the best resources to learn different things. Alcamy is a platform built around an active community of like-minded learners who not only make learning easier but also more sustainable and engaging.

Self-learning will play a large role in every one of our future careers, and we're building towards the most open platform for people to do it with!
