What I plan to do after graduation: I have worked on research with professors at North Carolina Central University and the University of Minnesota, and I plan to pursue a graduate degree in artificial intelligence.
Why I Love Computer Science: To me computer science is the backbone for modern change. Every major advancement in the past 15 years stems from the power and abilities of engineering and computer science. The idea that I can be a part of that change is not only exciting but inspirational for me to pursue a degree in computer science. Furthermore, there are so many different avenues that computer science can take you down. I never knew I would be where I am today, and I can only imagine where I will go in the future.
