Teaching is my passion, but helping fellow strugglers is my calling
My mission is to empower people who are intimidated by VBA, with ideas and generic code, they can tweak easily and use in their projects.
How I decided to start writing this blog:
I work on Excel a lot, and I realized that writing a few lines of code could save me the trouble of doing mundane procedures repetitively. I intend to post the Functions, Procedures, Tools and Add-ins that I write, in this blog, so fellow strugglers like me can benefit from my experience. I also hope to get help from experts and improve my codes through this blog. I expect it to take a while before you find this blog useful. At the least, this will be a fun way to store my codes.
Where I learnt the art:
I worked as an Actuarial Analyst in one of the best Pension Consulting Firms in the World, and I got a chance to work with their Excel Model Building and Maintenance teams. I worked with a couple of brilliant minds there. They had standards, they had philosophies, they had flair, they had it all! I helped them set small models from scratch; then went on to collaborate with them on some of their bigger models. I owe it all to the fellows there!
A bit about myself:
I specialized in actuarial science in my masters’ program, and I want to become a qualified actuary. I invest extra time and effort into creating intuitive spreadsheet applications that improve productivity at the workplace.
Almost all of the people who have dramatically influenced my life were enthusiastic academicians. I believe that the greatest gift in life is having a nurturing mentor, and I would like to be that for someone. I intend to embark on this journey as an actuary, coaching associates to become proactive consultants. Eventually, I would like to become a professor at a university, moulding students into resilient professionals. I owe it to my future mentee, to become the best at what I do; and I consciously direct my endeavors at gathering what I consider essential traits of a seasoned mentor.
And by the way, I created my blog’s logo. I was a Photoshop and Illustrator enthusiast back in the day.
