"I found my time studying at UST incredibly fruitful: apart from completing dozens of course projects and going abroad for exchange, I also participated in different robotic competitions and conducted research in different labs. After interning at three different companies, I decided to start my own company. All of these experiences have shaped me into who I am now.”
