Hi. My name is Maria. A long time ago, when my older sister worked at the dolphinarium, I started to get into technology and different applications. And every day after school, I would go back to my hobby. Now, I know a lot. I have a lot to share with you about technology. About apps. I hope you'll find it interesting here. Welcome.
