A Malaysian Student Experience at the University of Arkansas

Hi! My name is Patrick Kwok, and I am an undergraduate (Junior) majoring in Computer Science with a minor in Mathematics. I am also the President of the Indonesian Student Organization called Persatuan Mahasiswa Indonesia Amerika Serikat or shortened as PERMIAS. I am studying abroad at the U of A in hopes as I pursue my dream goals, which are to become the chairman of my father’s company and also my own IT start-up company. A little bit about me: My interests outside of school are playing music and also sports! I can play the piano, a Chinese instrument called Guzheng, a little bit of violin, and during this quarantine, I am currently learning how to play guitar by myself. Furthermore, I’m very passionate about sports–that is one of the reasons why I chose the U of A.
