Hey guys!
Today is a very special and happy day for me, because I was watching a series on NetFlix and when I get my phone, I see this email:

It is a great pleasure and honor to receive such a cool and important award, and with that, I join a team of excellent data professionals around the world who, like me, have a real passion for sharing knowledge. It really plays a movie in our head, remembering remarkable moments, victories and defeats throughout our professional journey. Surely my motivation is 100% renewed and I intend to do even more for the technical community.

I believe we should share the knowledge we acquire in our daily lives, because it is thanks to the community, blogs, forums and face-to-face lectures that we find solutions for our daily lives and can come up with new ideas to “think outside the box. the box ”, learn about new technologies and evolve professionally.

What is Microsoft Most Valuable Professionals (MVP)?

For those unfamiliar with Microsoft Most Valuable Professionals, or MVPs, he recognizes community leaders who have already demonstrated an exemplary commitment in helping others get the most out of their experience with Microsoft technologies. They share their exceptional passion, real-world knowledge, and technical expertise with the community and with Microsoft.

These contributions can be through:
- Submitting project source codes
- Personally speaking (lectures and events)
- Helping others in forums, (and why not Telegram / Whatsapp groups)
- Creating content (articles, blog posts)
- Providing Feedback for Microsoft Products

I particularly feel more comfortable creating content and helping others in groups, but I can also lecture at some events. I know MVP's who are solely dedicated to content creation (and are very good at it), others who are dedicated to lectures and in-person events, visiting various states and even countries sharing what they know, so there's no definite way to be recognized, every professional should do what he likes and if it is God's will he will be recognized sooner or later.

Importantly, the MVP does not have to be the goal of a professional, but a consequence of a work done with dedication, passion, commitment and aiming to share knowledge and exchange experiences.
