I believe that every one of us is unique in every way, and with opportunities we can all strive to do our best and feel proud of ourselves. February is Inclusive Education Month in Canada and Microsoft is working with partners like Fair Chance Leaning to bring inclusive learning tools to the classroom. They want to highlight how a classroom that includes technology can strengthen inclusivity and ensure children, of all learning abilities, are set-up for success.

When I was younger, during the holidays I remember my dad buying a typewriter and making me learn the keys and learn to type. I am so glad I learned this skill because whenever someone in my family, a friend, or a relative wanted a letter or a resume to be typed, I was always the person everyone came to. When we bought our first family desktop, I was already familiar with the keyboard and I was so glad to be introduced to Microsoft Word. Growing up my spare time on weekends were spent typing essays, creating simple spreadsheets and of course PowerPoint slides. For me, Microsoft Office started it all.

I am participating in the Microsoft Canada #SummerSwitch 30-day challenge. I was given the Nokia Lumia 920 #windowsphone to explore and use it for my daily activities. I have fallen in love with this phone from the time I saw it because of its sleek, modern, innovative design. It is very comfortable to hold and handle.
This phone is definitely impressive, as I have been having my family, friends and colleagues wanting to check it out and wanting the same for themselves.
