Once upon a time there was a woman in love with human mind and its unlimited potential.
She saw it in technology, but it could be almost any industry, really. She wanted to be a part of it for as long as she remembered.
She was raised by an educated mom, in a country with people self-inflicted with irrational fears drawn from communist times. Her mom was anyway the only one from 5 siblings to go to the university and continue career in education.
The girl never had a father since he left her when she was only 3 months old.
He gave her mother an ultimatum – giving the baby to the orphanage house or seeing him leaving. (that was the last time they saw him).
She spent her childhood leafing through books about space, time and cats. Her mom never made her miss anything. Despite her mother herself keeping away from risk, she always told her daughter that she can do and be anyone she wanted.
