I didn't expect nga mapadalhan ko og notice of examination (I went over a PNPA advertisement. I connected regardless of whether their site had bunches of bugs. I didn't hope to get a notice of examination),
She joined at any rate and motivated a letter enabling her to step through the examination.

Carisusa's unique dream was to wind up a specialist but since of neediness, she took up software engineering through the grant of the Department of Science and Technology-Science Education Institute.
"I had the capacity to work in a privately owned business as programming engineer for about 18 months.
