As a computer science student at the National University of Singapore,
I have gained a deep understanding that hands-on experience and
practical application is key to mastering any skill. To this end, I
have pursued several internships and software engineering roles to
sharpen my skills and knowledge.
In my first summer of the university, I had the privilege to
join a startup where I worked on diverse web development projects. I
found this experience both fascinating and fulfilling. To meet the
challenges, I had to engage in a lot of self-directed learning and
proactively seek out the guidance and mentorship from my colleagues.
Despite the difficulties, I persevered, and seeing the website go live
while knowing that I played a part in developing its tools gave me a
sense of satisfaction and accomplishment.
Working as a software engineer, I am always searching for
opportunities that allow me to utilize my skills while continuing to
learn and grow. I am excited about the dynamic and constantly evolving
nature of the field and am confident in my ability to meet new
challenges as they arise.
