Student to present work in art show

Growing up, Bishoy Saad spent little time away from the computer.

As a child, my parents predicted I was going to become a computer freak, said Saad, who moved from Egypt to the U.S. with his family about six years ago. Although they werent completely right, I came to discover that I enjoy working on computer programs and can actually spend a whole day sitting in front of a computer.
