I was born and raised in Douala, Cameroon and immigrated to the U.S at the age of seven. I lived in Gaithersburg, Maryland (where he learned to speak English) for two years before moving to Houston, Texas. I am a junior at the University of Texas at San Antonio (UTSA) studying computer engineering with a minor in computer science. My research interests include fiber optic communications and engineering management,as I ultimately plan to create a technology firm that provide basic IT services to, and invests in, start-up companies across Africa.
