International Student Spotlight Features Mahdi Seyednezhad from Iran


Mahdi Seyedneshad from Iran and a PhD student, majoring in Computer Science, stopped by the WFIT studios to participate in an International Student Spotlight, hosted by EJ Castor.  At the end of the interview, Mahdi spoke in his native language of Farzi (Persian) and sent a greeting back to his family and friends in Iran.  Mahdi also spoke of the difficulties encountered in leaving his home country to study in the United States.  Provided with a one-time, five-year Visa, students from Iran must remain for the duration to complete all of their coursework prior to returning to their home country.  Florida Tech provides a fantastic environment for students from all nations to come together to work together in a peaceful environment and hopefully establish long-lasting friendships.
