At 4Geeks, we have developed a strong internship program to help students who are ready to graduate, improve their professional experience, and expose themselves to projects similar to those they will face in their first job opportunities. Alex is one of those students and is really committed to the Tenndo project.

I asked him a few questions, to know him better. Let’s see what he has to say…

How will you describe yourself?

I describe myself as an honest, responsible, charismatic, creative, happy,
dynamic person, capable of fulfilling the objectives I set and self-taught.

How do you enjoy your free time?

In my free time, I like to occupy it mainly to learn new things, but if I have fun watching some fiction series, from time to time I play a video game, watch sports, go out for some air and go to the movies haha since I consider myself a movie fanatic.

Best series you have ever watched?

I don’t have a better-predefined series to say, because with the passing of time there is always one that I like more, but it could be that currently, I consider that the best I have seen in every sense would be The Mandalorian.

Mountain or the beach?

Since I like the cold weather better, it would definitely be mountain.

Do you practice any sports (adventure, extreme, endurance)?

I used to play baseball, but now it would be an endurance sport like running (I honestly practice it occasionally), but I would like to get to swimming.

What kind of music do you like?

Maybe it’s weird, but I like all kinds of music as long as it has good lyrics and good rhythm.

What are your top books of all the time?

I am not religious, but with what little I have read, I could consider The Bible one of my favorite books ever. And I would also add to the list:

  1. The Art of War
  2. The Alchemist
  3. Don Quixote of La Mancha
  4. Moby-Dick
  5. Neuromancer
  6. And currently, I am getting to know Dune.
What are your top 5 movies of all the time?
  1. Iron Man
  2. Avengers
  3. Back to the Future
  4. Schindler’s List
  5. Dunkirk
What is the most exciting part of being a Software Engineer?

I think the most exciting part is when you are trying to solve problems using logic.

What are your goals for this year?

My goals for this year are: To improve more personally, to help someone, to take away great experiences and knowledge from the internship, to make good progress in university, to play a sport, and to learn a new language.

It was really nice reading and writing about Alex; I am a big Marvel fan too. This batch of interns has a big number of members, so we will have a lot of blogs coming.
