Turn on my power of freedom

About me

My name is Sofia and I'm from Portugal.

Someone once said "She's very enthusiastic and eager to test everything tech-related. Loves to get every front-end platform working automagically. She programmed her own Pebble and comes from the beautiful region of Alentejo."

Oh and yes. My story is a little "out of the box". I have a Masters Degree. I'm a medical doctor in pediatrics.

Actually, being a medical doctor prepared me for programming: organization, team-work, fast-learning, multi-tasking and looong hours of work when needed.

I'm truly happy, and my thirst to learn more and different things does not cease.

Why my nickname Stamina? Well, during my 6 years of college, I (also) spent my time playing WoW. Actually, as a guild master. And my username was off course Stamina. So... yes. I was never a typical medical doctor.
