Year of Graduation: 2020
Current Country of Residence: USA
Current Occupation: PhD Program at NYU Politics doing research on data science methods for social science research and the sociopolitical impact of software.
Your Major at NYUAD: Computer Science
Stand-Out Memory of NYUAD: I took a game programming class at Tandon that was both one of the most technically challenging and creatively stimulating. My roommate Yousra and I spent a lot of time struggling through our homework in our dorm but working on these projects together is one of my favorite CS experiences.
Key Advice for Current Undergraduates: Push yourself to seek the support you need when you need it, whether that's asking other students for help, going to office hours / the Unix lab / or learning through different resources. CS has endless applications, try to tailor your CS experience to your own interests and passions rather than feeling the need to fit into someone else's stereotype of what a CS student does or likes.
