My name is Maryam, and I am from Iran. I am a Laravel web developer.
I really did not know that I loved programming. When I was a high school student, I loved solving math problems, and because of that, I wanted to study maths at university. But thanks to the guidance of my uncle, I started to study computer engineering instead.
When I graduated from the Ferdowsi University of Mashhad, I went to work for some companies in Iran. For about three years I did not get any salary or a very low salary, but thanks to my colleague, who was a really good teacher, and LinkedIn, I work for Ucpro company in India, and I am really satisfied with my job now.
I hope I progress more and more and become a founder of a software company someday.
