I sometimes become confused who i am in terms of definition, responsibilities. In this article i have tried to find all my roles independently.
I am a Student, though i have graduated back in 2011, i still have lots of things to learn everyday, my to be read list is really huge, getting big day by day, so far i have been struggling so much to keep up with the list.
I am an Software Engineer, i have a degree in Computer Science and Engineering, during graduation time i kind of never envisioned that i would go to the software sector, but fortunately i had opportunity to work in a software farm for several years, I have yet to learn the craft more perfectly but yet i refer myself a software engineer. Though my title in job refers me as a software engineer, i am still not confident enough to build a software solution ground up by myself. So, I am working towards learning that craft.
I am a Data Analyst, my day to day job involves me to ensure data quality, troubleshoot data issues, develop data quality assurance processes, identify data correctness, analyze pitfalls which kind of makes me a Data Analyst. Though i work with statisticians but my responsibility is kind of technical, translating their discoveries in technical languages.
I am a Programmer, I am not that much competitive programmer but i am still practicing everyday to make myself a better programmer. The Problem is while i was in school i never thought myself as a programmer, if i would have worked more in that times i would have been far ahead now. But its never late and though my ability as a programmer have shortcomings now, but i wish to recover them very soon.
I am a Volunteer, I volunteer for several communities, for some volunteer work is tedious and they raise a obvious question why work for someone else using your own resources ? To me, i love to work for the community, i hop in if i find any volunteer opportunities suiting my pursuits.
I am a Community Manager, I manager several technical and social communities, i love the work, on weekends i talk with the peers of the communities, fix out next agenda, also follow up on the weeks what’s happening, do they need any help of mine.
I am an Entrepreneur, if you ask me what did company did you built ? the answer will be none, i am an Entrepreneurial mind, i have several failed attempts a company, i am still struggling on that, but i would like to refer me as a Entrepreneur through the virtue of that mind.
I am a Muslim, by birth and by thought i am a Muslim. Though i am having really hard time to be a practicing one, i have left Salat, than again joined back, than again left. I am also learning the rules, teaches of Islam to implement them in all aspects of my life.
I am an Organizer, I love organizing events, could be of technical type or non-technical, that makes me a organizer.
I am an Evangelist, i love to spread news of something good in the community, surroundings. Besides i am an evangelist of better technologies, i let people know what’s good in their and what change it might bring in their lives.
I am a Guardian, as being a son, elder brother, after sudden death of my Father, i take care everything of my family. As Guardian of the family i have to take care of every belongings of the family, find out everyday what’s happening, manage family matters, solve problems and so on.
I am a Public Speaker, I spoke in several occasions in different technical and non-technical events, when i keep doing it i become significantly better, but when i do it after long time, i kind of feel shaky. But i love to depict myself as a Public Speaker, though i have yet to practice a lot to become a successful one.
I am an Idea Person, I have lots of ideas, which makes me a idea person, but if you ask what idea did you materialize, i would have very few answers, I am working now to being a person who also implements things when having a great idea.
I am a freelancer, its a new term emerged now-a-days though i was doing this kind of things from long ago, but i am still not successful enough.
I am a Struggler, I have been struggling a lot to keep up with all that roles above. I struggle everyday, every moment to keep myself on the right track.
I am a Writer, you can refer me as a failed writer, i love to write and its one of my soothing things, that’s why i am forcing myself to do it very often, my aim with writing is not that i want to be a famous writer, aim is just to sooth myself, create ability in myself to express properly all my thoughts.
Thanks for reading, if anyone reading this. Happy Friday, i need to catch office transport for office now.
