Although mathematics used to seem to me a difficult conundrum, but after majoring in it I have changed my perspective. Mathematics helped me open my eyes and view every course as a life story and every problem as an experience. It influenced my decisions and choices by teaching me how to think logically and rationally. It challenged me and helped me become a great critical thinker and a creative problem solver. I have been inspired a lot by the great theories and thoughts in math and this has encouraged me to pursue research and continue towards higher education in mathematics and statistics. I am proud that I chose mathematics as my major.

I was fortunate enough to have studied for the Master of Science in Mathematics at American University of Sharjah. The program not only enriched my knowledge, but also made me realize the beauty of mathematics. I am deeply grateful to my professors for their help during my studies, for their patience, commitment, readiness to support, and face-to-face meetings. Without their continuing advice and support, mathematically as well as personally, I may not have accomplished as much as I did.

Ever since I completed my bachelor’s degree in mathematics, my dream was to pursue my studies in the field I loved the most. With my traveling to UAE and having a family of my own, I felt that my dream was no longer achievable. That, of course, was before I knew about the master’s program in mathematics that AUS offered. I joined AUS believing that this place would provide me with the full support I might require and all my expectations were met. AUS faculty soon became my second family. The experience I had studying at this place was far beyond amazing. I was able to enhance my mathematical knowledge and advance my teaching skills with the chance offered to me by joining the graduate teaching assistantship. I am truly thankful to AUS for the three amazing years I spent at its fabulous campus and I would definitely recommend the graduate program in mathematics to all young mathematicians who are eager to sharpen their knowledge.

Studying mathematics sometimes made me wonder if I would ever be able to find a job outside academia, but seeing that I now work as a data analyst at a media agency, I can say I was definitely wrong. The logical mindset and analytical skills I had fresh out of AUS allowed me to become a valuable member of my team and start contributing in ways even my more experienced colleagues could not. The things you learn by studying mathematics are incredibly fundamental, but also in short supply in the professional world, so they will help you stand out no matter where you end up working.

When I joined the university, I least expected myself to be part of the mathematics department. After rigorous discussion and research, I concluded that graduating with a mathematics degree not only allows me a world of job opportunities but also develops a new way of thinking. Now that I've found my department, I wouldn't trade it for the world.
