"They saw potential when others didn’t and gave me a chance", she wrote.

She mentioned that she was not aware the position she was being offered even existed.

"The role I’m currently in? I didn’t know existed. I didn’t know there were roles like this in tech and that my skills collide well. (Same with the role I was hired as an intern for and first full-time role)"

The young lady added that working at a big company like Microsoft was never a part of her dreams.

Akosua revealed she just wanted a job in order to become financially secure.

"They’re bigger than all the companies I ever applied to. And have also impacted my life more than the companies I applied to prior to working here (even through childhood)", she added
