Major: BS Computer Science
Hometown: Pune, India and Raleigh, NC
I chose this major because... I picked computer science as my major because I am fascinated by the impact that technology can have on people’s lives. I also enjoy the problem solving involved with programming.
Favorite Course(s): CI-102/103 - I really enjoyed the freshman design sequence as I had the freedom to learn programming by developing a product. I received the opportunity to work in a team of four students on a long-term project and build my software development skills in a supportive environment.
Clubs/Extracurricular Activities: Drexel Blockchain Club, Drexel Smart House Club, Beta Chi Theta Fraternity, Intramural Sports.
Co-ops I've done:
I have not done a co-op yet but I would love to do one of my co-ops in the blockchain industry.
Favorite thing/place at Drexel: Playing pickup soccer at Buckley Fields.
When I'm not at Drexel, I'm... going for concerts, sports games, hackathons or exploring the city.
When you are in Philadelphia, I think you should... go to Beiler’s Donuts at Reading Terminal Market or on Penn’s Campus. Best donuts ever!
Advice to new/incoming CCI students: Try different activities, introduce yourself to people and have a collaborative mindset while working on projects.
What is your dream job? My dream job would be to work as a blockchain architect at a large consulting company.
Favorite Animated Character: Mike Wazowski from Monsters Inc.
