“I have spent more than 35 years going out into the community to teach people how to use computers, something I am still doing on a voluntary basis (covid-permitting). The one thing that has remained the same during these years is the constant need to learn new ways of doing things. As a perpetual learner, I appreciate the help of those who provide me with information and support, and I hope that I can be of help to others in my turn.”
