Stephanie Grima’s Curriculum Vitae
As a person, I consider myself as capable to work alone and with a team easily. I am very hard working, and do whatever I set my mind to doing. I am currently at MCAST ICT, during my last year of my studies reading my Higher National Diploma. I also hold an A-Level in IT as well as a National Diploma in Computing. I see myself working in IT as a web developer or software programmer while I continue furthering my knowledge by doing exams such as MCTS and others. Something I am very proud of is that I am a frequent blogger/article writer on a website, and that as of 6th of March 2009, I am one of the few MSPs (Microsoft Student Partners) in Malta.
