How did I become an IT student?
Hello everybody. Before enjoining my story, I’m going to introduce myself. I major in software engineering. Three years ago, when I was in high school, I consider that I wouldn’t become a student in this field, although my relatives and friends regard me as the person being appropriate IT.
To back earlier, I participated in an information technology contest and got the third prize in my district, which with praise from parents made me gain much motivation for learning programming. And this is the reason for the first time I get exposed to coding and the way to resolving reality problems by program, especially Pascal(the language program). I immersed myself in learning Pascal programming, considered it is a soulmate. So, I refused every hang out with friends for programming and playing video games.
When being in high school, I missed the opportunity to make friends and lost relationships. Sometimes, I felt boring and alone, stress and pressure, but thinking about the programming contest of the province, I plugged myself into the algorithm and programming again.
After finishing the contest, I hadn’t got any prize. It was an awful feeling. I thought that my effort for many years is exchanged for empty. It’s surprising that my friends I didn’t have a good relationship with cheering me up, help me get rid of sadness. It’s very fortunate for me. After that loss, I feel terrible and uncomfortable when programming, because I had coded too much before. So, I had thought that I will become an electricity student instead of software. And I almost had to regret it.
Finally, I entered a software engineering major. I think programming interesting and I hope that we don’t spend too much time and effort. Besides, we need to have a balance between programming and social activities.
This is the first time I write, thanks for reading.
