The seed of inspiration was sown.
Since then it has been a long, long journey. During secondary school I took part in a lot of computer science stuff, conducting workshops, and even basic coding. I remember my self-written program in Visual Basic for puzzle game on my room wall, distinctly showing something different to the wall; profoundly satisfying! Later during my high school years, I was advised by my physics teacher to take part in Computer Science Quiz and the Inter School Programming Contest. To my wildest surprise, I was amongst the 8 candidates from 10 schools, and more than 100 applicants, who reach to quarterfinals of Inter School Contest. These achievements gave me solid thrust to pursue what I had long...
