Why I chose my major: I love learning languages which is part of the reason I chose to major in both German and CSE. The creative problem solving skills you learn in CSE are very interesting to me. It’s not only a life skill to know how to code, but it’s also fun and at many times feels like solving a puzzle. I believe that computer science can take me anywhere and I’m excited that this summer it’ll be taking me to SPARK.

Why I chose my major:
I chose to major in computer science because of its wide variety of applications and the stress on problem-solving. It makes you practice skills like communication, creativity and collaboration that can be used for a lifetime. Most importantly, it solves many issues, allowing me to make a mark on the world. It has already allowed me to start making an impact while because I am a SPARK counselor.

Why I chose my major: I chose Engineering for a lot of reasons. It’s a really good career! But more than that, I love to design and build things with my own hands. I also love a challenge and being an engineer, especially a female one, can definitely be a challenge. I’m so excited to share all the amazing things engineering has to offer!
