It's incredible how quickly the time has flown by since I joined
the program, yet I also feel I've gotten the opportunity to do so
much in just a short time. During my first year at Palo Alto
Networks, I focussed on building a Telemetry platform that helps
our customers maximize the benefits they enjoy from the products
and services that Palo Alto Networks delivers.
Unlike many of my colleagues, who knew early in life that they
wanted to pursue careers in cybersecurity or computer science, my
background includes a variety of different, seemingly unrelated
experiences. I grew up in Taiwan and was interested in
international affairs and communications, so I attended college at
National Chengchi University and earned my bachelor’s degree in
diplomacy. After graduating, I gave myself two years to explore any
career that interested me. I worked for a short time as a set
designer with a filmmaking team, and then I worked as an editor for
a company that published a design magazine and did public
I was born and raised in Kyrgyzstan, a country that most people
in the world haven’t heard of, and I speak both Russian and
English. I lived in that country until I was about 24, after I
earned my master’s degree in information systems. I never planned
to get into sales at all. I set out to be a software developer, but
I couldn’t code to save my life, so I went into systems
administration, which basically meant I was in charge of everything
that plugged into a socket and related to information
