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.
