Since I was young, I was always the person at home trying to fix other people’s electrodomestics or computers, even when sometimes I just broke them even more. But it was really fun trying to figure out how different things work and learning from there on. With my interest in games and sometimes programming small code for them, I finally decided to try Informatics as a career.

After graduating, a teacher told me about ThoughtWorks and I was surprised by the Social and Economic Justice pillar here, so I really wanted to join and be part of that fight. I joined in August 2018 and went to Pune as a trainee in the 63th batch at ThoughtWorks University. I had an amazing time there and would love to go again, but this time as a trainer. In less than a year I have learned so much about software, consulting and social and economic justice, but I still have so much to learn and improve as developer.
