Challenge Failed, I succeeded

2 years ago and days before I’m enrolled in the department of Computer Engineering in my faculty, I had a big challenge with myself.

The challenge is very simple to describe, it’s being of rank 1 on that department. I had that dream and I promised myself to do my best to achieve that.

And here comes the day, 16/07/2009, where the challenge result is declared that I’m not that one of an overall grade of rank 1 on my department.

Of course I felt so sad towards that but the fact that this challenge gave me a lot of benefits made me think again about it and find that even if I failed to achieve it, I succeeded!

How did I succeed?

I had a rank of 5 when I first got into that department with a difference of 245 marks than that mark of rank 1.

In the 1st year in the department (Computer 3rd), I could make a big jump from the 5th place to the 2nd place after ranking 1st on that year being the only student with a grade of Excellent (1326/1500) in that year.

And in the second year which is the 5th and last year of college, I couldn’t make that big jump of the previous year, but I could be again ranked 1st on that year being again the only student with a grade of Excellent (1291/1500).

In short, I’ve been the only student who could get a grade of Excellent in the 3rd year and also in the 4th year of the Computer Department. I could reduce the difference between me and the first place from 245 to 69 and jump from the 5th place to the 2nd place.

On the other hand, I think I had some other achievements that make me think of success. I’ve been ranked 1st on TopCoder, Programming and Algorithms Contests website, during the last 3 years and could make it to blue which has been also a recent challenge.

I’ve also been to the ACM/ICPC ANARC 2008 Programming contest locally and regionally. That was the first time my faculty contributed in that contest and I believe we did a great job. BTW I should thank Abdullah Saad and Marwa Yusuf, my elder brother and sister and TA’s in the faculty, for being with me … I wouldn’t make it without you guys!

I was first employeed in my transition from the 3rd year to the 4th year as a Software Developer in Bedaya TV in the EMPC and had about 2 months in that job.

Finally, I have been elected by the faculty staff and IEEE members to be the IEEE Student Branch Chairman in my faculty in the last year. I had been involved in organizing a lot of activites and still working on some.

I’m not going to stop at this point. Life should be full of challenges, otherwise it’s of no use to live it.

Alhamdulillah for that result, I dedicate it to my dear mother … I’ll be a man of my word!

    ولئن شكرتم لأزيدنكم
    وانت يا أحمد كنت بتزكي عن علمك بعملك .
    فكونك كنت عضد زمايلك وكنت في عونهم ربنا وفقك .
    وبحمدك ليه وازديادك في شكره
    هتكسب كل التحديات القادمة ان شاء الله
    أتمني لك ايمانا قويا لشخص قوي يؤثر بقوة وفعالية في من حوله . ويرفعه ربه مقاما محمودا في الدنيا والآخرة .
    أتمني ان تكون رجلا متواضعا يرجع الفضل لربه ولا يغريه الشيطان بنفسه فيسقط متلما سقط آخرون

    ربنا يبارك فيك ويحفظك يا احمد ويجازيك كل خير على فكره انا كنت واخده عنك فكره غلط وهى انك ” “من صورتك اللى فى المنتدى ولكن لما قدمت الخير بدون ما حد يسألك ودا لما قلت لنا على امتحان السنة اللى فاتت ل د مازن عرفت ان الناس مش بالصور وكمان بعد ما شفت الحاجات الجميلة اللى انت كاتبها

    مش هاقول غير ربنا يجازيك خير
    بجد تستحق ان الكلية كلها تبقى فخورة بوجودك فيها
    لانك متميز مش بس علما لكن انسانيا كمان “
