Accomplishment

So Daddy is finishing up his final year for his undergrad. He will graduate on Saturday with a degree in Informatics. This entire year he has been working on a very big project with a team. The idea they chose to work on is an idea that he had come up with a few years ago and has toyed around with but not really had an opportunity to make the idea reality. His team was excited to work on this project with him. The culmination of the project would be the Informatics Capstone Fair where all the teams projects would be on display for exhibition.

A week before the fair he got word that his team's project was selected out of the 50+ projects be featured at the Capstone Fair and would receive a lot of exposure. (Projects from other years have went from projects to careers so this was a pretty big deal.)

The Capstone Fair was last Friday and went so well. Daddy was so excited about the positive feedback his project received. He was told it was very innovative and could possibly turn into the next big thing. During this past week he has bumped into people around campus who remember him and his project and continue to compliment him on the project.

We are so proud of Daddy and all of the hard work he has put in to school these past two years. He will begin HCI program in the fall and graduate with his Master's Degree in two years. What an accomplishment! (The HCI Master's program here only accepts 35 students from all over the world each year. Daddy was accepted into this prestigious program a few months ago. We are just a little bit proud about this.)

Here he is showing the girls the video he made showing off his project for the Capstone Fair after his long day at the fair and a night of no sleep due to finishing it all up and lots of computer glitches.
