Back in high school I was partnered with under performing students in our class to tutor for  Math and English subjects. It's fulfilling when you found they improved and even got highest ratings in the exams. Best advise I could give is be natural and treat your mentees as a person too that want to achieve the same way as you do. In my job now, I practice the same for those who requires help and assistance in their day to day task.

I am passionate about technology and i started in it during my school days. I didnt have a mentor as such but I highly regard Steve Jobs as someone to look up to. I want to build and work on technology so that it touches lives of common people.

Using Office to proof read my documents and slide decks to make sure they are inclusive to people visually impaired, blind or colour blind. Cool stuff the software can do for us now and make us more aware!
