- Self blurb
Subjective text about myself follows!
I'm a highly self-motivated person, always seeking to further and improve myself. Evidence of this would be that essentially all of the computer knowledge that I know (90% of it if not more) was self taught. However, I (hope to) expect that the people I work with are similarly self-motivated.
I am also a fast learner (especially when it's computer science related) and enjoy the challenge of learning something new and applying it in a meaningful manner. Although it has been argued that learning new things in the IT sector becomes easier as many things are related and past experiences does play a large role.
I do have a fairly wide set of interests, most prominent of which other than computer science would be economics and the financial system (as noted by my choice to do second year economics).
