Milestones

My road in life has been direct.
First, I wanted to be a veterinarian.
Then I blacked out when a vet was giving some stitches to my kitten and decided that wasn't for me.
Then I wanted to be a chemist or an accountant, but my mom gave me a lot of cons for both.
Then a friend told me to consider computer science. I was good at math and computers, so why not?
I didn't wanted to spend all my hours programming so I ended studying a mix of CS and business.
Then I discovered the role of Program Manager at Microsoft and fell in love.
Then I applied, got an interview, and became a PM.
I now foster shelter cats and dogs as a hobby.
Keep following my journey
