Why did you choose to attend UB?

There were many small reasons that added up to being a great reason for me to attend UB. Aside from being the first American college to accept my application, UB also attracted me towards it for the experience. After talking to a multitude of Undergraduate and Graduate students, I was certain that UB is a culturally diverse college. By having societies from different backgrounds living together and striving to achieve the same goal, it made me feel uncomfortable, yet that was something I was willing to expose myself. UB is the only school that I saw was successful in that.

What is your fondest memory so far at UB?

Since I was an international student, I didn’t know much about American sports. My exposure to American football eventually led to me being a spectator at a blackout game. One of my roommates and I painted our faces, wore black UB apparel, and were all fired up about the game. All that excitement was unsurprisingly noticed by cameramen. That is how I got myself on national television.

What is your favorite thing about living in Buffalo?

The Community is amazing. By having traveled a lot, I can say that the Buffalo community does not make me feel homesick.

What makes your UB story unique ?

I came in as an introvert engineering Undergraduate student, and I graduated as an engineer with honors in extrovert-ness.

Aside from engineering, what else are you passionate about?

I am passionate about people. I was the kid who didn’t talk to anyone but two friends. Now, I can build a conversation with a group of people, and still connect with them at a deeper level.

What are your plans after graduation?

Three ways I can go. I can either go for graduate school, get a job, or start a company. I am currently looking at two of them. And it is exciting!

What is your advice to current and incoming MAE students?

Use the resources that UB provides to all its potential.
