My Major

I am currently a freshman at North Carolina State University who plans to major in Computer Science and minor in Business Administration. My anticipated graduation date is in May of 2020; however, I plan to go on to graduate school in pursuit of an MBA while working full-time.

Why?

Growing up, I gained a significant amount of experience with HTML and CSS because I enjoyed playing around on my mom's old computer. One day, I found a website design book my mom had left on the staircase because she was planning on building a website for her cut flower business. I proceeded to teach myself HTML and CSS and enjoyed experimenting with different types of software, especially software that would allow me to build movies or create games for my family. In high school, I took Web Design and Graphic Design classes, which further fed my passion for computer science. Work shadowing opportunities at both Red Hat and Defy Media revealed what working for a software company would be like. All of these elements influenced my desire to pursue a bachelors degree in Computer Science and working with leadership in high school contributed to my excitement over business. Overall, I am extremely enthusiastic about learning Java Programming next spring.
