What I plan to do after graduation: After doing a program management internship at Microsoft, I have decided to pursue a path in program management. I will be joining Microsoft full time after I graduate. I might go to graduate school after a couple of years in industry.
Why I Love Computer Science: I chose computer science because I love how it is so unique and challenging. My first year at NC State I attended a hackathon and saw the amazing things that can be done with computer science. I love how computer science gives me the ability to keep learning and go into whatever field I want to because of how incredibly broad it is. I find it very challenging but nothing beats the feeling of when I complete a project and see what I have accomplished and what my program can do. Computer Science truly inspires me, which is why I chose it.
