Summers At Source3
In June, Source3 welcomed Ali, Maliha, and Austin to our team. During their time at Source3, they truly became integral members of our team. Whether researching, attending meetings, or taking office field trips to Grand Central Station, our summer interns received a crash course in the Source3 lifestyle. Sadly, as the summer comes to an end, the time has come for us to wish our interns farewell. It has been an absolute pleasure to work with them, and we wish them all the best in their future endeavors!
Ali Naghdi Tam is currently enrolled in City College of New York’s Economics Masters program. Before moving to the United States in 2015, Ali received a degree in Industrial Engineering from the Islamic Azad University. One fun fact, about Ali, is that Source3 was his first Stateside internship. When he’s not analyzing data or testing hypotheses, Ali can be found watching his favorite HBO series, or playing fútbol. When asked about his biggest takeaway from the summer internship, he stated, “The importance of teamwork in start-up culture.” We couldn’t agree more.
Maliha Fairooz is a Computer Engineering major, at The City College of New York. Maliha was born and raised in Qatar and moved to New York City in 2012 to attend school. When she’s not recording her podcast, playing Pokémon GO, or exploring NYC, she enjoys playing badminton. Before working at Source3, Maliha co-founded a start-up based on prosthetic technology, which fueled her zest for start-up culture. When asked about her key takeaway from the summer internship she said, “There’s always more opportunities than you realize.” Given her youth, outlook and resourcefulness, Maliha is sure to be a trailblazer in the tech world.
Austin Rosenthal is an undergraduate senior at Wake Forest University. Austin is majoring in Business and Enterprise Management with a concentration in New Business Development and minoring in Entrepreneurship. On his own time, Austin is advancing upon an independent project with a classmate, WorkBench Inventions. Their vision for WBI is to evolve into an e-commerce website which provides entrepreneurs the ability to sell effectively and market their products, services or apps through established social media accounts. When asked about his biggest takeaway from the summer internship, he stated: “I gained knowledge regarding the developmental phases of young, progressing tech companies and the importance of fostering a family-team dynamic within the workplace.” Austin’s drive and dedication will undoubtedly lead him to many successes in the future.
