I have been told that I was a very fast learner as a child. Already at the age of four I learned how to read. This turned out to be quite handy at school, since while other kids learned how to read, I had plenty of time to educate myself in other areas that I found interesting. With the support of my teachers I got the chance to deep-dive into the world of mathematics, science and tech subjects. When I grew older I decided to study at the Technical University where I deepened my skills in IT.
It was a lucky move since IT was on the rise at that time. Before I even had finished my studies, I was at the hitlist of top-recruiters to work full-time as a developer. Years later, with my bag filled with new confidence and experiences, I finished my Master’s.
Another important thing that has shaped me into who I am today is my love for music. I learned how to play the violin at the age of four and as I grew older I realized that I had a real talent for it. I played until my early 20’s, at which point I actually could have pursued a career in it, but instead decided to stop. This, since I wanted to keep my passion for music intact by not making it my daily job. Today, I have managed to strike a balance between music and IT and I feel blessed to be able to have two passions in my life.
