Student Spotlight
Meet our Student Spotlight, Nhan Bui! Ms. Bui is the very first BST intern from our program. Please read our interview with Nhan below.
1) What is your major and class standing?
My major is computer science and I am currently a fourth year student planning to graduate this semester.

2) What are your plans for after graduation? career aspirations?
My internship place has offered me a job for when I graduate so if there are no problems with the process I plan to work for them. I do not have any big career aspirations, I want to just get my foot in the door right now.

For my BST internship, I am working closely with a senior developer to build a report module. The report module is unique in it is mainly not hard coded, so that different types of reports can easily be added by making minor changes to the back end configurations. 

3) Best college memory so far.
My best college memory is when my friends and I slept over at Sinclair to study for finals. It was very tiring and stressful at the time but now it is a good memory.

4) What advice would you give to underclassmen and/or peers?
My advice is to not stress too much about switching majors. Personally I switched majors five times until I found one that I liked.

5) What are some challenges you faced in your academic or professional career? How were you able to overcome them?
My biggest challenge is the chemistry and physics classes I had to take for my BS degree. I overcame it by studying with my friends and just pushing through.
