Flavia came to Canada in 1995 and wanted to do a career change after realizing that she wasn’t finding a job as a chemical engineer. At her brother’s advice she went to school and became a certified Java programmer a few years later. She worked as a developer until 2002 when she decided to switch to testing. She worked her way up from being a tester and a QA team lead to being an accomplished QA manager working for SAP Canada.

This is one of the success stories of an immigrant who had to learn how to do something completely new after coming to a country where language and culture are so different than where she was born.
