In college I received my first ever exposure to computer programming and fell in love. The feeling of creating a program and having the computer perform the actions you want it to is so empowering and I knew that that was the path I wanted to follow. I am in my fourth year of undergrad and love that there is so much to learn. I have gotten very involved in teaching and research and can’t wait to see what the future holds for me in this technological world. I just know that this is the field I belong.

“It’s like a superpower, so empowering to create something to help others by using computer technology. The possibilities are truly endless in the field and I love that there is always something new to learn about because of the expansion of technology. It never gets old or boring to me.”
