Why I Love Computer Science: Computer Science is such a versatile degree to embark on. It teaches you the fundamental principles of problem solving and how to think outside of the box and to question why the 'box' was created in the first place. I love discovering new technologies and being challenged to solve real life problems through means of efficiency and creativity. I particularly love back-end, end-to-end, and cloud development. Alongside this interest, I am also passionate about entrepreneurship and desire to run my own company someday.
