I have a dream, a dream that one day my people will be tech geniuses. The world is changing and computers are drivers of this change. The more you know your computers, the better there is a chance for you to affect the change. I want a better future for my people that is why I chose to be a computer engineer. I want to build a company one day, a company that will be focused on training people to become tech geniuses. Something like “UDACITY” but with a different motive. I have been working on how to cure poverty since I got here, and if there is one thing that I learned, it is train the people and you will cure poverty. I want to create a website that can help point people to all the resources that are out there. A website that will not just train them but lead and guide them through their careers.

It is an honor for me to be part of this program and everyday feels better than the day before as a Botstiber Scholar. First of all, I want to say a big thanks to the Penn State staff, they are always working hard to put together programs that make us better than we were before, especially the Volunteering Program we had in North Carolina. We did not just get the chance to drive through the country, but the whole program itself was an eye-opening experience and I will never forget.

I am grateful to be part of this program, and I thank everyone who contributed their resources to make this program a reality, and I will do everything that I can to make the most out of the Botstiber Scholars Program. The Botstiber Foundation gave me the opportunity to work for my dream. They took me from a place where big dreams looked impossible to a place where dreams are possible for those who are willing to do the work.
