As someone has said, ‘’Change is not easy’’. Yes, it was not a fairy-tale ride for me, but rather a roller coaster one. Learning programming was difficult but not impossible without the internet and laptop. I tried very hard, gave up so many times, went through all that frustration, and cried many-a-times, but didn’t quit. And that was the point I started winning myself. I was learning; I was growing. It was all just a phase, and it taught me so many things. Then I got my first laptop, which was a “grease-the-wheels” moment for me.
Thank you for what you do, Aditi!
