Career goal:  Amazon and Google are websites that are used by millions daily. I dream of developing impactful and useful websites like them. I particularly enjoy software engineering, especially web development. Websites are conversations between developers and users. The users use the websites, and the developer responds back with updates. Having a computer science or software engineering degree will allow me to create more responsive, impactful websites which are the link between knowledge and humans.

Tell us about the teacher, coach or administrator who made a difference in your life: Going to ASMSA is one of the best decisions I’ve ever made and meeting Mr. Nicholas Seward, the computer science instructor, made it better. He can answer all the questions I have, and throughout my interaction with him, I figured out my future goals and plans.
