I am from Afghanistan, I had started my career working with the United Nations ( UN ) as IT Officer for about 3 years, then I joined the Constitution Commission of Afghanistan as IT Manager till the end of the project. I received a Medal of appreciation from the Vice President of Afghanistan, something to be proud about. After that I started working with USAID (U.S Agency for International Development) in Kabul Afghanistan as IT Specialist. But because of the problems I faced in Afghanistan I was not able to live there any more and had to migrate to Sweden. I came here in 2007 and unfortunately had to wait for about 7 year’s till I got my Swedish Permanent residence permit. But during this time I didn’t wanted to sit and do nothing so I started to learn new computer languages I didn’t had any teacher or instructor so all I had was the books which were available at that time and my own will. I am very happy that I learned everything by myself so now I can proudly say that I am able to face any kind of real world problem and am able to find a solution.
My goal is not to drive fast toward my new career but to fly.
