Nineteen-year-old Michelle Goossens has just become a VMware Certified Professional (VCP). She earned her VCP certification in August 2021 on her first attempt, which is a fantastic achievement for anyone of any age!

How did she prepare? “I have a home lab and I used that to learn VMware products, and I more or less do it as a hobby.”

Michelle grew up around the family IT business. Technology has always been a part of her life, which fuelled her passion for IT from a young age. She believes that the future of tech is “migrating to the cloud” and toward Kubernetes.

The world of tech is an ever-changing landscape, and VCPs like Michelle are preparing for the challenges that lay ahead.
