What I plan to do after graduation: I hope to attend Medical School. I’ve always wanted to work at the the cusp of Medicine and Technology.
Why I Love Computer Science: I came to NC State in the Exploratory Studies Program. I knew that I wanted to go into Medicine, but apart from that, I didn’t really know which undergraduate degree path to pursue. I had programming experience from high school and I really enjoyed how it challenged me. I was a bit intimidated by everything I was learning, but the difficulty of the material only made me want to understand it more. Computer Science is so multi-faceted and broad that it can lead to so many different career pathways. I love that there’s always something new to learn in Computer Science and I love that the skills you build as a Computer Science major will be useful in any career.
