Why I Love Computer Science: I am a puzzle enthusiast with a love for problem-solving. From tackling Sudoku puzzles and playing strategic board games to discovering who the serial killer is in crime shows, I love the challenge and excitement of solving problems logically and analytically. I love Computer Science because it provides me with an opportunity to learn and extend myself and every project is a new challenge. Computer Science also appeals to my service-driven mindset. I have a passion for volunteering and I want the work I do to have a positive impact on the world around me. With technology being a driving factor in addressing global issues like climate change and world hunger – a degree in Computer Science is a valuable tool to finding pragmatic solutions to important issues.
