Congratulations to Pratik Singh (MSIS, Jan '19) on landing a position as Software Engineering Intern at UrbanFT, a FinTech company.
"I never thought that choosing Touro GST to earn my Master's degree would become one of the best decisions of my life. From the day that I filled out my application form to the day that I attended my last class, encompassing the last 2 years, it has been such an exciting journey filled with great experiences.
The highlights include meeting people from diverse backgrounds and cultures and working with them to achieve a common goal, working as a Graduate Assistant whereby I challenged my skills and learned new ones, and working and collaborating on many exciting projects. In addition, I was privileged to teach my first college class. I quickly understood how challenging a teacher's job really is. I will cherish these experiences at Touro GST forever. They have helped me become a better coder, communicator, friend, and person. The Administrative team along with the Academic staff were terrific, and I am deeply indebted to them for their assistance and guidance. I know that I would never have had these opportunities at another school.
Where millions dream to study and work in New York City, thanks to Touro GST, I got not only to live that dream, but to be at the heart of it. With a specific introduction from the GST team, I landed a job at URBAN FT, a finance technology company on Wall Street.
With all my heart, I would like to extend my gratitude to everyone at Touro GST who has been a part of my journey and helped me every step of the way. I will miss my professors, mentors, bosses, and friends at GST, and I wish them all luck!
As I begin the next part of my life's journey, I would like to end with words of Robert Frost: "I have promises to keep and miles to go before I sleep."
