In 2015, I started my degree at Sunway University and became one of the Microsoft Student Partners (MSP).
I enjoyed meeting new friends from different countries who are like family to me. Together, we collaborated with a social enterprise by conducting a workshop to spread Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) education to kids! I always pictured the Computer Science career as long hours of coding in front of my machine. That is a bummer because I love socialising and I also love IT. I never imagined that I would now be working in one of the Big Four accounting firms, doing IT and communicating with various people!
My work mainly involved in IT audit, cybersecurity controls and penetration testing. Through Sunway, I have built a strong foundation of knowledge that has made it easier for me to transition into my job.
For students in Sunway, things will not get easier but remain tough and stay grounded. Also, appreciate your lecturers because I would not be where I am if not for their hard work!
