Describe a time when you started using a new technological device (e.g. a new computer or phone).
It was at my six years old birthday party when I laid my hands on a computer for the first time.
That was 2002 when many families in the city I lived had not had the slightest idea of what a personal computer could do except processing text and screening stock market.
When my father told my to press the button mounted in a big plastic box, I couldn’t tell what my emotions exactly were. As I recall now, it should be a mixture of fear, excitement and expectation. The faintest idea I had about it was that I could write something using the keyboard and draw some simple pictures with a plastic equipment named mouse.
However, as I dived deeper into the computer world and got myself to be the most tech-savvy person in my family, I became very confident to say that greater potential were still to be discovered for the computer.
After a few days as a novice user, I gradually found the potential contained within the gray plastic box. I learnt to install gaming software and played it whenever my parents were not watching, for example the nights when everybody fell asleep.
