Truthfulness, joyfulness, curiosity, responsibility, and love are the core values that he upholds.
Jervie’s interests and hobbies include playing Basketball, Tennis, and watching Netflix.
While his family and dreams are his motivations, “ They keep me going especially during times of uncertainties'', he uttered.
How did he end up in his career?
“Growing up I really love computers, I remember my auntie bought us an Atari 2600 console back in the early 90s, and in 2000 when my uncle went back from Saudi Arabia he bought a Pentium 3 Windows Millennium Edition PC, that’s when I got hooked to computers”, he vividly recalled. He further remembered it was during his high school days that he was convinced to take up Computer Science courses by his other aunt who said it is in demand abroad and that it is cool to be a computer programmer. With this being told, he took up Computer Science and became a software developer eventually.
