Why are you interested in working with computers and technology?

From now on, technology will be indispensable in everyday life. We need to know how to operate and manage technology.

What’s your (current) dream job?

To be CEO of my own tech company.

How do you want to change the world? How do you want to change the tech scene?

By making it more affordable and accessible to small businesses and people in general, so that they have a better chance of succeeding, especially in developing countries and less privileged areas. I think right now only big companies have access to the type of information technology capable of solving many problems around the world, and we should make it available to everyone.

Why is diversity important to you?

It is very important to bring, and to understand, new ideas and perspectives, especially in a globalized economy.

Want to share a fun fact about yourself?

I am a motorcyclist; I own a Yamaha Fz8.
