Hello World!_

Hey there! ๐Ÿ‘‹ I am an Undergraduate Fourth Year student at the University of Alberta. My major is Computing Science.
Ever since I was a little kid, I was interested in Computers. When I was younger, I was absolutely fascinated by computers and software, and later I came to learn more about hardware and how computers work, this conformed my belief that this is what I wanted to study at college.

Outside of my professional pursuits, I have a passion for problem-solving, and you'll often find me immersed in the world of competitive programming on LeetCode. It's not just a hobby; it's a delightful challenge that I embrace with enthusiasm. Explore my LeetCode profile here to see some of my latest activity.

I am currently enrolled in the Science Internship Program (co-op) at my university, which allows me to work full-time for 4, 8, 12 or 16 months. The classes I have taken and the projects I have worked on cover a realm of Computer Science fields, from App Development and Web Development to Databases and Machine Learning & Artificial Intelligence. Now, I am looking forward to gaining practical experience where I can apply the Computer Science knowledge I have gained into real-world applications.
