is certainly thankful. Through ITEVA, he has become an expert in 3D animation and
video editing. He’s completed college-level courses through months of Microsoft
training programs in Brazil. He even received first place in a C# programming competition
in which many participants had more education and training. With that win, Josinaldo
was awarded an all-expenses paid trip to the Microsoft YouthSpark Live
in Mexico. It was the first time he’d left his home state.
Now 22, Josinaldo coordinates the IT section at ITEVA, teaching and mentoring students
who have backgrounds similar to his own. He’s attending university and with the
income from his new job, he was able to build a house. He has a wife and a young
daughter, who will have better opportunities thanks to her father’s education and
financial stability. Knowing he will be able to give his daughter a comfortable
life and hopeful future means the world to Josinaldo.
“Technology has changed my life and the lives of all the people in my family,” Josinaldo
said. “If it hadn’t been for (technology), today I would still be brushing chestnuts,
or in some other activity that would not give the prosperity I have today.”
