Why I Love Computer Science: Computer Science gives you the opportunity to brainstorm an idea and bring it to life by expressing your creativity however you please. You can also use your acquired skills to make a positive impact in others’ lives in ways you could never imagine. On a related note, I love Computer Science because being frustrated while trying to get code to function properly and then eventually persevering and figuring it out might be one of the most satisfying feelings in the world.
