My motto:

"We are all seekers and have a purpose in life. To attain it, we must always follow our heart because somehow it already knows what it wants. Wherever your heart is, there you will find the treasure."

What I’m studying at UB
Double undergraduate majors in aerospace engineering and mechanical engineering; graduate student in industrial and systems engineering

Why I chose the University at Buffalo
I wanted a top university in the U.S., but one that was affordable. UB was highly ranked, and I liked that it had a good engineering school.

My campus activities
Table tennis club, Career Services mentor

What I love about UB
The education here is top-notch. Academics can seem one dimensional, but at UB I got exposure to multiple dimensions, you get bits and pieces of each major. UB lets you experiment with fields of study; I enjoyed taking courses in history and philosophy.
