how i started bug hunting without computer ?

my difficult to start learning about technology and bug hunting was i do not undestand english ,i started by learning basic english online ,watching video youtube,using android app like dualingo ,speaky etc.. for learning and improving my knowledge in english.

to practice what I learn on my phone Since my computer is spoiled for lack of financial means i do not have a computer I set up free internet for friends so that they could lend me their computer, as I come from a family of traders, I sell the day in the evening I learned to program, I sell the day I learned to hack at night

the most difficult thing was that I could not share with the brothers, the friends, the family because they believed that the technology was reserved for the American, the European, the Asian but not a little poor of Guinea

I remember the first time to hear the word “bug bounty” I asked directly in bug bounty furum in facebook “ i know programming what tools i need to learn for bug bounty” . a awesome man Shan kar reply me “ learn basic awasp top ten ,burp suite etc..” directly i send it message on facebook

it was my great day thank again dear shan kar after some days of learning boom i hacked the first telecomunication company in guinea ,reported it got five t-chirt

some day again i hacked live chat of ubagroup write-up here but in africa when you hack a company you got nothing not even thanks,i think they dont know impact of security

now i just hack ,eat ,sleep, repeat every days
