Master's in Computer Science
January 2018 - June 2019
As an undergrad I took an intro to CS class. We programmed a little robot to explore its environment, stay within colored boundaries, and follow a path to a colored target on the floor. My professor encouraged me to major in CS. It was too late for undergrad, but I never gave up on the idea.
Even before then, I always had an interest. I tinkered with online Python courses. I taught myself the essentials of HTML and CSS just for fun. As a kid I used my Christmas money to buy our family's first 56k modem.
When the opportunity came, I took it. I moved to Chicago, took the GRE, applied, and enrolled. It's definitely been challenging at times, but I worked hard, and am proud of the success had.
