    Mine started in 2005, as I was preparing for university / college.

    A school friend told me about 'ibooks' from Apple when I was looking at potential laptops.

    I remember travelling over 200 hundred miles to get one as they were selling so fast.

    From that point on - Steve Jobs and the way he approached his business and his life have been a vision for me. My presentations at university were always praised (thanks to keynote), helped my grades improve, drove completely my interest in IT, and has helped me to get a job today at one of the top financial services companies in the world.

    I can truly say that without this man, my life would be very very different.

    I remember when I was younger people telling me stories of great people they had known as they were growing up, and never really understanding what it meant.

    When I talk to kids these days about people like Steve Jobs, most of them shrug and go back to playing their xbox. I guess experience of brilliance is the only way in which we can appreciate it.

    So that's how Steve changed my life, and continues to do so.

    How did Steve change your life ?
