My name is Petek Sener and I was born in Turkey. I have lived in Istanbul my entire life. I am a first year student in Pratt. I am a female, just to let you know if you could not figure that out from my name.
Pronounciation Of Name
It is hard to explain how my name is pronounced but I wil give it my best shot. It is very similar to Pea-tec.
I love fencing! Unfortunately I had to take a break in my senior year of high school because it was getting harder to keep up with all the college applications. Another interest of mine is LOTR; I like both the books and the movies.
Grand Challenges For Engineering
When I was looking at the topics, the one that intrigued me the most was 'reverse-engineering the brain'.

My favorite MATLAB demonstration was the 3-D plots in the graphics section. I really enjoyed the different colors and the wave-like shape of the plot. Also it is cool that a plot can be 3-D. I thought the 2-D plot was mundane.
