Hi! My name’s Amir and I’m a sophomore at Georgia Tech who is passionate about creating value by bridging the gap between research and industry.
A quick highlight reel — in the past, I’ve:
I host a podcast with a friend every week where we talk about creativity and happiness. I also do some public introspection aka thinking about random things right here and on Twitter.
- I ran a marathon on 1.5 months of training as a bet (time was 3:43:17) and here’s a picture because I still don’t believe it!
- I was born in Egypt, raised in Dubai, and have traveled to more than 10 countries around the world, from service trips in Kenya to surfing adventures in Thailand
- Although I am ethnically Egyptian, I learned English before Arabic. When my parents could only talk behind my back in French, I was forced to take it up in high school and show them otherwise
