How do you define success?

Success means reaching a goal or accomplishing something you've set out to achieve. It can be a small achievement or a big achievement. It can be measured in various ways, such as financial gain, career advancement, personal growth, happiness, and fulfilment.

If I had the power to instantly change one thing about the world, it would be…

Corruption and poverty

The most enjoyable way to spend my spare time is to…

Spending time with my family as well as walking and spending time in nature because I spend most of my days in front of a computer, which obviously isn’t the healthiest thing. That’s why I try to minimise screen time when outside of work, to give my eyes and my back the rest that they deserve.

The part I find most rewarding/exciting about my job is

I am constantly being trained and updated to improve my abilities, and it's fascinating to see how much progress can be made in a short amount of time. Additionally, being able to help people in their day-to-day tasks, provide useful information, and enable more efficient communication are all aspects of the job that bring me joy and satisfaction.
