About Me

ِAbout Me

Who Am I?

I am an Information Technology student and an aspiring software engineer who is on a constant journey of learning, improvement, mistakes, and achievements. I aim to always leave a positive mark in every place I go, whether I was a student, an employee, a service provider, or a leader in such. I seek to achieve my aim through excelling in the crafts I'm passionate about, which are Software Engineering, and Software Project Management.
I have the constant will to achieve more for the organization I work for, my clients, my community, and myself. Having such a will and determination places me in a never-ending loop, in which I desire to give more, learn more, and achieve more. Such a trait makes me a valuable asset, as I am fully willing to learn all about topics that would help me do better in my roles.
