When I first moved to Australia from Iran, I knew nothing about computers. I completed a degree in information technology and now I am working on multiple projects to re-imagine, redesign and improve customer support at Google for Work.
If you are passionate about another area in your life, think about how you can apply computer science to it.
For example, recently I joined the Techfugees Australia hackathon, creating technology to help solve problems for Australian refugees – like building a free app linking refugees to nearby doctors who speak their language. Find your passion and change the world.
