Microsoft Student Partner (ID:2014/593)

Story

In 2014, I was given the honor of being a Microsoft Student Partner(MSP) after a rigorous selection procedure which included delivering a seminar on Azure, making a Microsoft App and attending some Microsoft courses. 

Being a MSP was an incredible learning experience. Not only did I get to meet tech-minded from all over the world but I also learned lots of new technologies including Microsoft Kinect which proved to be pivotal for my career. 

I also got the opportunity to organize seminars in places which had never seen a computer before. It filled me with great joy to watch them learn how to operate a computer and do simple tasks with them.
