"I came to the U.S. not knowing a single thing about programming. I didn't even know how to use Microsoft Excel. After these four years of hard work in Union's computer science department, nothing can scare me. If you love what you do, with hard work and motivation, you can rise to any challenge. I was definitely challenged to think analytically, strategically, and creatively. Many practical group projects were very beneficial for me to learn another aspect important in life and that is the `power of synergy' where 1 + 1 > 2.""
