About


A short insight into who I am!

I'm currently a third-year Software Engineering student at Western University that is passionate about software and web design. Somewhere in my mind, there was always a wish to pursue engineering. As a child, I enjoyed finding out how things worked, and engineering allows me to use my creative-thinking and problem-solving skills to help create innovative ideas and resolve obstacles in situations.

My curiosity about technology pushed me to pursue Software Engineering as learning to notice different patterns when coding has always amazed me. I am deeply interested to know how things work and innovate something more efficient, especially as technology is always advancing.

At the moment, I am seeking Software and/or Frontend Web Development internships for 2021.
