“Growing up in a developing country and coming to the US to pursue my education and career in Software Engineering was never easy. I encountered many challenges, but I kept working hard, asking for help when necessary, and never giving up because I believed in myself.

There were some people who wanted to see me fail on my journey, no matter how hard I tried. But I didn’t let them distract me; I kept pushing, and being myself.

When I work hard and achieve my goals, it always feels so rewarding. But if I don’t achieve my goal after working very hard, it is still better than not trying.”
