Computer Engineering – May 2020 

Short-Term Goals

My short term Goals (for this academic year) are mainly targeted towards life after college given that I will be graduating next year. My hope is to go to grad school after this, which means I need to build a portfolio that will make me a good candidate for grad school; mainly getting a good GRE score, continue doing some research work that is related to my preferred field for grad school (namely computer architecture), and reaching out to people that are already in that field to get more input on the work that they do to know exactly what I am getting myself into. However, since I am keeping my options open, I will also be working on getting a job/internship after graduating, still in the computer architecture industry.

My other short term goal is to serve as a good role model and bridge of support to both my residents, and my peers as a Resident Advisor and create a fun, safe, and open community within the resident halls by being resourceful to them either through organized events or one on one conversations. 

Long-Term Goals

I have always lived by a motto of giving back and sharing knowledge has been one of the things I have always enjoyed throughout my tutoring days of high school and college; that is why being a professor is one of my long-term goals as it would not only give me an opportunity to share knowledge I acquired, but to also keep learning through research. My other long-term goal is to give back to my community by creating opportunities for young adults to receive excellent higher-level education by improving their educational systems (especially colleges) through funding for better school facilities such as labs and libraries, and by either giving more training to existing professors or by bringing more knowledgeable professors in their institutions. Along with providing better education, my other long-term goal would be to help those students get employed upon graduating by creating job opportunities for them by convincing various investors to gauge their funds to positively exploit the riches the African continent has to offer not only to them as investors but also to the African community.
