A small history of my school career

For my secondary education, I studied classical Latin and mathematics. A study choice that probably won't proof to be that useful, but at least now I do know what 'Alea iacta est.' means.

The extensive training in maths that I got, however, does help me a lot with coding logic.

I also had a LOT of presentations, group projects and book reviews. And these were, of course in different languages.

So, due to both the amount of language training and my Latin classes I'm able to speak and write English and French fluently.

After I graduated from secondary school, I decided to go to university. I enrolled to a master degree in Architecture and Engineering.

I chose to study architecture because I thought that the mix of creativity and maths would keep me interested. However, the workload was impossible for me to handle, especially the combination of studying and finishing your designs on time. So, as you might already have guessed, this turned out to be too challenging, so I looked for opportunity elsewhere.

Searching online, I ran into IMD, a study that combined two of my passions: programming and expressing my creativity. At university, I was already introduced to programming in the subject Informatics, one of the few subjects I enjoyed.

So I applied and I immediatly liked my choice, even though I started in February and had to catch up a lot. Now my dream is to become a professional designer/developer and help people by creating solutions.
