Faisal and Fuad

Two Brewbaker Technology Magnet High students developed high-tech skills and gained invaluable experience when they were chosen for an intensive six-week program known as All Star Code. The nonprofit program places high school students at top tech companies, giving them the access and exposure necessary to become high-tech entrepreneurs. 

Faisal and Fuad Hossain competed with more than 600 other students for the chance to take part in the program. After a rigorous selection process, Faisal was placed at Yahoo, and Fuad was placed at Facebook. 

During their time at the tech companies, Faisal and Fuad proved that they are true innovators. Fuad created a way to check out at grocery stores more efficiently, while Faisal created a sleek and user-friendly personal finance app for students. 

Along the way, the brothers worked on  countless coding projects, mastering aspects of HTML, JavaScript and CSS programming languages. They also learned about networking, collaboration, professionalism and other “soft” skills. 

The brothers are in Brew Tech’s Information Technology Academy and are involved in 16 student organizations and clubs. Both have multiple certifications, and Faisal is currently the only certified Microsoft Office Specialist Master in Montgomery County.
