“I was inspired by a few amazing teachers who showed me how much space there is left for creativity in computing. Once I grasped that “[e]verything around you that you call life was made up by people that were no smarter than you and you can change it, you can influence it, you can build your own things that other people can use” (Steve Jobs), I became confident that I want to pursue computing.”
