Dean Leitersdorf / Computer Science

About myself: I was born and raised in Mevasseret Zion, a municipality near Jerusalem. During elementary school I lived in Switzerland with my family, where I studied at the Geneva International School and was exposed to learning in English. Continuing my journey from the GIS, I returned to Israel and attended the Jerusalem American International School before transferring to the Goldstein Youth Village school in 8th grade. Lastly, I once again moved with my family abroad, this time to Palo Alto, California, the heart of the Silicone Valley, where I skipped 11th grade and graduated early.
Growing up in a very dynamic and international environment, I developed the skills to make friends from all over the world and gained exposure to a wide array of traditions. Living in Palo Alto, the entrepreneurial spirit engulfed me and awarded the inspiration to pursue Computer Science.
Nowadays, I have completed my first year at the Technion, winning the Presidential Excellence Award twice, and I am beginning to construct the path of my adventure in the scientific world. I am fascinated by CS, Mathematics, and Physics and hope to explore and delve deep into the mysteries of the universe.
