Why I Love Computer Science: Growing up, my dad always pushed me towards Computer Science. I was never actually interested in it until I attended Summer Ventures in Science and Mathematics. After learning how to code BASIC microcontrollers with PBASIC, I found that I loved the logic puzzles of code - and more than that, how versatile programming is in problem-solving. Since everything is touched by technology, I knew that studying Computer Science meant open doors, no matter the field. I am the type of person who has many different interests - from music to sociology - and I love Computer Science for its versatility to be applied anywhere.
