Aspiring Software Engineer | Computer Science and Data Science Junior at Luther College | United World College Maastricht Alumnus | Fundraiser | Blogger.


I am currently a Junior at Luther College majoring in Computer Science and Data Science. For the past two years I have been working as a Software Engineer at Luther College Software Development department, and working as a Teacher Assistant for the Computer Science and Data Science departments. In addition to these experiences, I had a Software Engineering internship in January 2018 at CloudInn, a company that integrates online travel agencies in microservices architecture where I worked on two projects in Test-Driven Development using Golang under Agile development. In terms of classes, I am done with all my Computer Science and Data Science classes but two; to be done in Spring 2019.

I started programming at the age of seven and have been learning about different technologies since then. I have a strong foundation in Computer Science and problem-solving, I have developed software apps and websites using different technologies that varied from C++ Socket Programming to React Native. I have also developed multiple statistical/analytical models in R and Python.

I graduated from United World College Maastricht with the International Baccalaureate Bilingual Diploma. I founded 2D Game Designing club in high school, volunteered and worked at multiple charities including Salvation Army Maastricht, Books4Life, and AZC Refugee Center. Also, I have been an organizing member of several committees, NGOs, and conferences; among those are UWC Egypt National Committee, iEARN, and TOK Conference Maastricht. In 2014, I successfully crowdfunded 50,000 USD to attend UWC Maastricht. I do blog occasionally.

I am expected to graduate from Luther College by May 2020. Among classwork taken so far (110+ credits): Intro to Data Science, Intro to Statistics, Fundamentals of Web Programming, Data Modelling and Querying, Intro to CS, Algorithms and Data Structures, Software Development Tools, Java OOP, Computational Models, Internet Programming, Advanced Algorithms and Data Structures, Programming Languages, Applied Statistics, Data Visualization and Analysis, Machine Learning, Computer Networks, and Operating Systems and Architecture.
