About Me

I'm a third year CS student at Northeastern University studying Computer Science with a concentration in Artificial Intelligence. Some of my favorite courses were/are Object Oriented Design, Programming Languages, Artificial Intelligence, and Machine Learning. Graduation: May 2024
My Passion
I'm in Software Engineering because I have a strong desire to improve the world through technology. Since I was a child, I loved everything about technology, building my first computer when I was 9 with my dad. Today, I think what sets my apart is my well-roundedness. I'm not just diverse in my technical skillsets, but I am constantly engaged with the business side. I'm confident that I can suceed at any job due to my ability to ask the right questions and learn quickly.
In my free time
I love cooking and I love eating even more, I try new cuisines whenever I can. I also love fitness in general. I do strength training, boxing, brazilian jiu jitsu, and martial arts (I became a blackbelt at 15 years of age). I also love podcasts and audiobooks. I'll occasionally binge a good novel, but mostly, I'll listen to finance, business, tech, self-development. Some of my favorite audiobooks: Freakonomics, Automic Habits, The 4-Hour Workweek, and Harry Potter (Deathly Hollows); Podcasts: Motley Fool Money, Pivot, The Firsts. I'm involved in a Muslim Youth Group called Arkanum where I mentor middle school to high school aged kids. I give them Islamic lessons, go out with them in Boston, and even chaperone on overnight retreats. I joined as a mentee 5 years ago, loved the community, and stayed ever since. I also got married in May of 2023 💍
