Being a gifted student, the ministry of education in Egypt offered me to join a special high school built in the capital for gifted and talented students nationwide. My conservative father rejected the offer as the school was too far (400 miles) from home. I was the exemplary student and the student union president in certain years. …show more content…

The degree will open doors for positions such as researcher, scientist, or software engineer at top places. Many positions at prestigious companies like Google require or prefer applicants who gained a master degree in computer science. My dream job is to work as R&D software engineer at Google and I am sure gaining the masters degree from your prestigious department will increase my chances of landing my dream job. My previous research experiences include NLP, A.I., and Information Retrieval. Moreover, I am interested in exploring “Machine Learning” or “Computational Biology”. My ability and potential to do independent research has been proven from the results of my research experiences, which led to a patent and unique products. I graduated from the best and the most expensive school in my country on 2011 when the “Egyptian January 25 Revolution” began and the whole country was in chaos. Although challenges, I prepared well to pursue an advanced degree in computer science. For more than 5 years after graduation, I gained a lot of skills from industry. I learnt a lot of new programming languages and technologies. I developed a lot of software products either for web, desktop or mobile. I have reviewed a lot of algorithms and studied "Programming Challenges" book solving all the programming problems

I did this because I am a big fan of all three of these games, and I wanted to challenge myself by implementing the game logic. Also during the summer I started learning android. The app that I built that I am most proud of is a calculator that works in sixty different numeral systems from base 2 to base 62. I started the project making a calculator that uses hexadecimal instead of decimal, but then I decided to expand the project by introducing more bases using the characters 0-9, a-z and A-Z.…
