Hometown: Kathmandu, Nepal
Major: Computer Science
Future Plans: Software Engineer, Google NYC
Namaste, everyone! I am Bikki Nagarkoti hailing from Nepal, and now a senior computer science major at Fisk University in Nashville. Thanks to the Presidential Scholarship that covered tuition, room, and board, I was able to receive a quality education, without worrying about money. The small class size has fostered good relations with my professors and peers. I got immense help and support throughout my undergraduate journey. Fisk has offered countless opportunities in college and beyond. For instance, I recently got a chance to attend Goldman Sachs’ HBCU Leadership Summit in NYC. During the summer of my each college year, I did three internships at Google. I did freshman and sophomore Engineering Practicum internship at Google, Mountain View, CA and Software Engineering internship at Google, NYC. I will be joining Google NYC as a full-time software engineer in June 2019 after my graduation. I will always be indebted to Fisk and my professors. The liberal arts education at Fisk has not only shaped my overall development but also helped me look into my inner-self.
