Computer Science/Data Science, Spring 2022
Mahrokh was born and grew up in Tehran, Iran. At the age of seven she learned to play badminton and was very successful. Her athletic excellence was matched by her academic prowess and she was admitted as a graduate student to Azad University where she attended for two years prior to a tragic auto accident that resulted in spinal cord injury at the C6-C7 level. After two years of learning how to navigate life in a power wheelchair she applied for admission to the University of Science and Technology (IUST) where she had successfully completed her studies in Electronic System in April, 2014, with a Bachelor’s Degree diploma in the field of Information Technology Engineering. She found work in her field in Iran then had the opportunity to come to the USA for two months for advanced medical treatment and was later able to immigrate. Mahrokh is grateful to Swim With Mike for allowing her the opportunity to pursue an advanced degree in Data Science, a field that will allow her to prosper.
