Education

A Network Management graduate, Nasrul spent his first two and half years in the Department of Computer Science. Once he became Cisco Certified Network Associate, followed by Cisco Certified Network Professional and Cisco Certified Security Professional, he chose to complete his graduation in networking rather than computer science. After leaving advertising in 2007, Nasrul was craving to learn more about the science of language, and thus, completed his MSc in Applied Linguistics and Second Language Acquisition. Spending most of his time studying, photographing, researching, and traveling through different cultures, which drew Nasrul closer to people, life, and nature. His dissertation was on “the origin of language,” which helps him doing researches and studies on different religious’ scriptures in their original language using today’s established science, in order to understand the meaning of life.
