I clearly remember the day we got our first rather large desktop computer and from that day on my life changed. My soon to be husband was explaining that I could use something called email to contact my family in other states and I was hooked. I started exploring all the programs and things the computer could do and slowly an interest to be a part of this latest boom was deeply imbedded in me. I rather disliked the dial-up noises but dealt with them to send emails to my family, create graphics used to sign my emails and to learn all I could about computers.
We had the computer for awhile before I learned that all the pages I was viewing were made with code. Looking at said code gave me a headache and I couldn’t figure it out for nothing so I decided to go back to college and take all the classes I could on HTML and Web Design. I drank it all in and started letting people know I could make websites. I got a few gigs creating sites, and finally landed a job with creating a site and maintaining it on a daily basis. That job lasted two years and brought my family much needed money. All while instilling a love in me of being online and having daily updates, which led me to where I am today.
From then on I ate and slept computers, graduating to a laptop, thanks to my brother-in-law, and becoming mobile with my work. I learned everything I could, and depended heavily on Microsoft products in my work and play. My life was changed and my eyes were opened up to a whole new world. And you know what? I still learn every single day. And I am constantly amazed at how technology has grown over the years. But I am more amazed at how I have grown with technology over the years and I know I could not have accomplished what I have done and continue to do today without my favorite programs; Microsoft Word, Outlook, Powerpoint, OneNote and Excel. They have been a part of my life for as long as I remember. And I am so happy that I can say my entire family relies on these programs as well. I am so proud of my 19 year old, 12 year old and 4 year old and all that they have accomplished on computers and I love that they know more than I did at their ages. Two of my children even went to classes via computer during their homeschooling days.
Today, I am proud to be a Microsoft Windows Champion, a place I would have never dreamed of being 10 years ago. To be able to work closely with other Champions and the amazing people I get to work with has been a dream come true. My life is full of technology and I am doubly blessed to have Microsoft and their products in my life. And one of my new favorite tech products is the Sony Vaio Y computer that I received being a Windows Champion, all hot pink and everything! I live on this computer and I couldn’t be happier!
