Welcome to my website!

Hello! My name is Clarissa Rainear, and I am a freshman in Computer Science at NC State University. I chose Computer Science for its flexibility. I want to enter the workforce armed with a degree that will allow me to explore as many of my passions as possible. As a writer and an artist, the language aspect of CS appeals to my interests. At the same time, the specificity of each language's syntax and the mathematical algorithms used in coding appeal to my more scientific inclinations.

My favorite hobby is writing poetry. From my sophomore to my senior year of high school, I worked on my high school's literary magazine: Roars and Whispers, currently the number one high school lit mag in the country. Though my initial skill level was less than ideal, over time I worked to build up my talent. Now writing is both an exercise in therapy and an exercise in stretching my vocabulary. I have found that my three years with Roars and Whispers have led me to be a more eloquent writer, not only of poetry, but of essays and speeches as well.
