Saadman Shahjah
Saadman Shahjah Major: Computer Science

I started working as a student worker for user support services since 2017. As a computer science major, I wanted to gain some experience in the school's IT department. Winning the scholarship was one of the most highlighting moments of my life, and it gave me a great boost to try even harder to further accomplish my goals. I am graduating in May 2020, and want to implement all the valuable experiences I gained as an IT staff here at UHD into my professional career.

Min Thiha Myo worked in the IT Operations department as a student assistant starting in 2017. While Min wants a career in programming he felt that he wouldn't succeed with just knowing the programming aspect so he joined Operations for a hardware prospective. Min is described as a breath of fresh air, loyal, hardworking and ambitious. All of us would agree that without Min things wouldn't be as lively.
