Said was born and raised in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania. He graduated from New York University with a Bachelor’s degree in mechanical engineering along with a minor in economics.

Placing among the top ten out of 330,000 students in Tanzania, Said was awarded a scholarship at the International School of Tanganyika to be part of the IB Diploma Program. After finishing high school, Said volunteered at the Tanzania Student Achievement Organization (TANSAO), where he assisted students with SAT preparation, English language enhancement and college applications. Said later received a full tuition waiver to study engineering at NYU with a strong emphasis on the liberal arts as well as cross-disciplinary learning.

In his free time, Said enjoys listening to music and playing soccer. As an avid Game of Thrones fan, he’s always down for a serious discussion about who will end up on the Iron Throne.
