Why I Love Computer Science: I was first introduced to programming as a senior in high school when I took an introductory java class, and I was immediately fascinated by the subject. From the moment I saw “Hello World” appear on the screen, I knew that Computer Science was what I loved to do. For me, Computer Science is an exciting field because technology has become a vital aspect of society that it is only going to grow as our needs and wants change. This is a career that will allow me to work with the latest innovations and shape future technology.
