“I was attracted to the University of Toronto due to its renowned Computer Science programme. The University of Toronto will give me access to excellent facilities and experienced professors that will undoubtedly prepare me well for my future. At the University of Toronto, I will have unparalleled opportunities to work for leading tech companies that will enable me to have an impact on the world. I am excited to live in Toronto and explore its vibrant city life, as well as meeting new people from UofT’s diverse student body.”
“My interest in Computer Science stemmed from observing the transformation that technology has caused to everything around me. It fascinates me how progression in computer science is moving us towards a more digitised lifestyle. I aspire to be a part of this revolution and lead technological change in the future. I hope to use my problem-solving and programming skills to express my creativity and solve the challenges that I encounter.”
“At Bangkok Patana, I was one of the Secretaries General for the Model United Nations where I ran the after-school club as well as organising multiple conferences with the rest of the secretariat. I was also Co-President of RISE, a student-led club that aims to improve the well-being of children in the slums of Bangkok. As a co-Leader of Patana Development Bank, I also organised the Techathon, a coding competition, in which we used the funds to make micro-finance loans to families in Kenya and Tajikistan.”
