Tell us about yourself along with a fun fact!
I had interned at Microsoft Research Cairo in my undergrad and Microsoft Redmond last year (after my 1st year Masters). In my undergrad, I was awarded the Entrepreneur of the Year award after my junior year after my first built Windows phone app hit 10K downloads in first 3 weeks.

What # would define your life journey?

Favorite website / app:
I love Quora (just reading all the answers to different sort of questions) and any tech news website like Techcrunch. My favorite app would be Instagram (because it lets me share my journey through various moments snapped at different times) and Chess.com (Lets me challenge random people for a quick game of chess).
Tools would be Jupyter notebooks and Azure Machine Learning — Testing Python and Machine Learning models have never been easy.
