My road in life took a while to figure out.
I took interest in technology as I wanted to understand how my Nintendo worked!
Learned how to do very basic programming in my family's computer.
Studied and became capable of writing more complex software.
Worked to meet people in the industry until I landed an internship.
Was able to show my first employer I was a hard worker and able to constantly learn.
Dreamed big and decided I wanted to join a top-tier technology company, and Microsoft took me in.
