Launched my first Lean In Circle

After attending the Grace Hopper Celebration conference last October, I knew I had to do something in my own community at the University of Huddersfield to help girls who study STEM subjects. Help them see the incredible opportunitites they have. At the beginning of this year, I discussed with two other final year students and we decided to start a society for all girls at… Read More

Masters Offer from UCL

I just cannot emphasise how happy (and relieved) I was yesterday when I received the offer letter from UCL. People that are close to me know how much I’ve wanted this. I spotted this Masters degree since I was in my first year of University. I emailed the admissions office and inquired if the course that I am on and all the modules I take… Read More

HTTP Video Streaming

As I have mentioned in my previous post, my dissertation will focus mainly on optimising online video streaming for slow Internet connections.

New York, United States

What can I say now? It has always been my dream to wander the streets of New York, admiring breathtaking skyscrapers and enjoying a walk in the famous Central Park. My dream came true this year! Anxious that I wouldn’t get a tourist visa for the US, undecided how I should travel from Montreal to NY and with no idea where I should stay, I… Read More

Rework, by J. Fried and D. Heinemeier Hansson

What an amazing read! I finished this book in just a few hours, as it is so well written, it fells like you are reading small and smart articles. Divided into chapters, the articles are one or maximum 2 pages long and focus on a main statement formulated as the title. The book is truly a mix of secrets, tips and advice from the writers’… Read More

Croatia

Nonetheless, this trip took as through 10 countries in 14 days : Romania, Hungary, Austria, Germany, England, Italy, Slovenia, Croatia, Bosnia and Herzegovina and Serbia! I… Read More
