What I plan to do after graduation: I am concentrating in Cybersecurity and so the plan for after graduation is to go into the Cybersecurity field. I am also majoring in Arabic so finding a career to bridge Computer Science and Arabic would be ideal.
Why I Love Computer Science: I was very fortunate because at a young age I knew I wanted to be an engineer before I even knew the word for it. I was fascinated by all things computers, so I went to many STEM camps trying to figure out what exactly I liked. I attended a Cybersecurity camp at the University of Maryland and since then I've been on the Computer Science track. There is just something so rewarding and fulfilling about struggling and finally seeing a computer execute exactly as planned.
