I wanted to attend Northeastern for many reasons: the co-op program, the reputation of the engineering school, and the great location, all of which allow for so many opportunities. After I graduate, I want to work as a software engineer in the United States before moving to a different country and expanding my skills abroad. I hope I can use what I learn in Northeastern’s Computer Engineering program to make life better for the average person.

I am so grateful for university donors because my family would not have been able to afford Northeastern without the generous scholarship I have been given. Even the high-tech computers and equipment in the engineering labs have been made possible through donor support. This technology has made my courses so much more engaging and hand-on.

To all of the Northeastern supporters, thank you so much for your gift. It has allowed me to have opportunities that I never could have dreamed of. My parents are teachers, so I have always believed that education is the most important gift that one can give. I will be sure to pay it forward someday.
