July 1., is the day of the year I am continuously refreshing my inbox waiting for *that* e- mail. This year I received two e-mails! I received the great news; I am re-awarded the Microsoft Most Valuable Professional (MVP) title for the 4th time on a row and I am accepted into the Windows Insider MVP program for the first time!
I am humble, honored, and extremely proud to be receiving these recognitions. What a year it has been, I had the pleasure to speak at multiple Microsoft Tech Summits, I was assigned duties at lasts years Microsoft Ignite, I got more involved in the Windows Insider community and really feels the impact becoming a Microsoft MVP has to me and my career – add to this, the huge insight, the information, and the access – it has been incredible and inspiring.
This year, I am one out of just 57 Microsoft MVP’ in the category Windows and Devices for IT and still the only one in Denmark. Being part of this amazing program makes me proud and I am honored my contributions are recognized and rewarded with a Microsoft MVP Award.
Being an Microsoft MVP is only made possible by the support from my family, my colleagues, the community around Everything Windows User Group, Denmark (EWUG.dk), the people involved and their huge support.
Thank you to my employer, without the support and their trust in me, getting re-award would not have been possible!
