Additionally, the academic rigor of his program adds to Omar's skills in work ethic and adaptability as he has five courses every semester.

In all these experiences, Omar acquired new knowledge and challenges every step of the way. Hence, he needed to have a flexible mindset to adapt to the changing conditions in order to complete the tasks ahead of the timeline, for more time to review and add final modifications. In his last work term, Omar worked on a project with over 35 people thus showcasing his teamwork skills as he needed to be on the same page with everyone else in order to be a properly functioning team member.
