How I got here…
At the age of 10 I was addicted to playing computer games. My curiosity about how these games were developed motivated me to explore programming so I could develop games of my own.
In secondary school I enrolled in a Cisco networking Academy where I learned networking and programming. I started working as a freelance web designer doing what I love, which led me to pursue a degree in computer science.
Before graduation I joined IEEE and the IEEE Computer Society which assisted me in gaining professional experience and kept me up to date with emerging technologies.
Why I love my job
I majored in computer science and I love it because it undoubtedly embraces innovation. There is opportunity to identify and solve problems in different fields using computing concepts. I feel that computer science is the academic discipline of the future.
Life outside of work
Beyond studying I love travelling to experience and learn new cultures, peoples’ ways of life and how technologies are utilized in other communities.
I also love to play basketball, watch movies, visit clubs and play adventure video games.
