When I was a child I joined a friend in an informatics course he had started, which was my first contact with a computer. My friend let me play on the computer for a few minutes and the teacher was impressed by how easily I learned to use it. From that day my interest in Informatics grew more and more. I started programming when I was 12 and started college when I was 16. My main goal in life is to improve myself a little bit every day. I do a lot of things for fun: play chess, Rubiks, play guitar, draw, program, journaling, make fun of the bad things that happen in my life, and call my mom.
