21 February, 2019
Sopho Shinjikashvili is the only Georgian working at one of the biggest Microsoft Development center in Prague. The successful Georgian girl graduated from Tbilisi State University, Faculty of Exact and Natural Sciences. She was studying a French-Georgian program - Bachelor of Informatics.

At first, Sopho was planning to choose International Relations as her future field. Later, she realized she was looking for something that would combine math with creativity. And, finally, Sopho opted for Computer sciences believing the field would give
her plenty of possibilities.

When she remembers the university years, she thinks that there was intense competition among the students. Staying up most of the nights, exams and anxiety during her studies ultimately contributed to her successful career. After finishing university, Sopho started sending applications to foreign companies. The selection process of Microsoft involved several interviews, some of them in an office in Prague. Sopho successfully covered all the steps and became a member of the company.

She moved to Prague with her husband who specializes in the same field. Sopho is very proud to be a Georgian member of the group full of other nationalities. She suggests youngsters follow their dreams and never pay attention to phrases such as “choose a profession suitable for a girl”, “It is not that easy”, etc. The successful Georgian girl believes receiving a diploma means nothing as the key to a successful career is non-stop education and development.

Sopho plans to take part in creating an automated translation program for the Georgian language. She hopes she will be able to present the program in Sukhumi, Abkhazia (Russian-occupied territory).
