United States is (still) a great country...


…for many reasons. Yesterday I added another one to list.

Twelve years ago I arrived on Atlanta airport with my lovely wife, two kids, eight bags, poor English, and a lot of hopes for better life.

Today I can proudly add “Microsoft Lync MVP” to my list of achievements.

While this can be considered “personal” recognition, in my case I view it as combination of family sacrifices (well, I am still married), countless sleepless nights and… a lot of fun. I would love to think of it as of (yet another) proof that no matter where you’re born, no matter what language you speak and, what basic skills you have – the sky is the limit in the this great country!
