Why I Love Computer Science: I've always had a passion for math and realized that computer science and math were related for the fact that I was able to make a computer do math. Ever since I learned my very first coding language, which was HTML and noticed that I could create some neat webpages with this. I decided to learn some more languages like Assembly and made myself do some basic arithmetic with it and it appeared that sometimes the answer wasn't correct. The concept of debugging was introduced to me as a puzzle trying to figure out why my program wasn't working, but once I do figure it out it's one of the best feelings in the world, and ever since then I loved computer science because of that great feeling of joy.
