IT
Since I was young, I have always been fascinated by how technology works. From the Nokia 3310 to the iPhone X, the rapid advancement of technology has been a wonder to me. On top of that, to learn that all of that is I assembled my own computer at the age of 15, after doing that I was certain that Infocomm Technology is the school I am enrolling in after graduation. It was really an eye opening experience for me, to learn that the computer is not a work of magic but many different parts working together. I am a curious person, I find out more about what I am interested in, often times leading to the discovery of more things. I attribute my passion for coding to the curiosity that I have, one of the many reasons why I am interested in IT. The fact that just typing in some codes into the computer can lead to the creation of Windows shows how limitless coding can be, which is why I am passionate about coding. On top of all that, I am also very competitive. I strive to be the best, not the best out of everyone, but the best of myself.
