What is your Topcoder story?

I first heard about Topcoder from my brother in 2010. I'd just gotten started with the USA Computing Olympiad contests and was looking for resources for practice. Pretty soon, though, I started pursuing Topcoder for its own sake, and SRMs have become one of my favorite pastimes.

Why Topcoder?

It's been an amazing hobby over the years — Topcoder's pushed me to challenge myself, introduced me to people around the world, and gotten me in top shape for interviews and contests.

Tell us about something in your life, outside of Topcoder, that you are most proud of.
