Celebrating my year anniversary as a Microsoft MVP for Business Applications
In this post, I will share about my experience and journey being a Microsoft MVP for Business Applications during the year 2020-2021!
It was an overwhelming moment to first receive and open the email about the award and the program. I was “super excited”, “humbled and honored” to receive the award and had a great feeling of an accomplishment. The MVP credential outshone my profile and I had an opportunity to connect with the industry experts in Business Applications and make a lot of new friends.
I shared the news with my parents but they obviously did not understand much as they had no clue about what I was talking. However, my friends from the community and my peers at my workplace were very happy for me. Seeing how people were getting excited about me becoming an MVP and wishing me on social media made me even more excited about this.
The MVP credential also brought over a set of responsibilities as a community leader and I had to try and provide my best to serve the title. I have had the opportunity to host and speak at multiple free events for the community on a national and international scale. Meanwhile I got to learn newer things, clear a set of certifications to achieve the Power Platform Solution Architect and the Microsoft Certified Trainer badges. As a highlight, my team won the Global Microsoft Business Applications Summit Hack 4 Good hackathon.
It all started in August 2019 when I presented my very first session on Power Automate and Power Apps at the 365 Saturday Conference in Hyderabad. I found the community treasure on the Power users forum and resolving queries posted by people and actually working on those problems was a great learning for me to sharpen my knowledge and get a good understanding of the tools. By mid-October 2019, I made it to the Super Users group on both Power Apps and Power Automate communities and I couldn’t feel more proud boasting those badges on my profile.
I am looking forward to see what this year brings and hope to continue with my learning journey by sharing my learnings and building cool solutions using the Power Platform. Cheers!
