How did you get into computers Joy?
In the sixth grade, I had a teacher, Ms. Augustine, who taught programming on dummy terminals writing BASIC — line number 100.., line number 200…, line number 300…, need to add something line number 150…. She encouraged my parents to get me a Commodore 64 and my mom steeped in the belief that knowledge is power made the Commodore 64 happen.
Great story, right? It is! However, there’s more, in fact, a lot more. The “why” is the more. Why was Ms. Augustine so successful in getting me excited about computing? You see, Ms. Augustine looked like me. So in Ms. Augustine, I saw my possibilities.
“Whatever the mind can conceive and believe, it can achieve.”
