Cyber Scholar, Y4

The Cyber Scholars Program and the CWIT community have already impacted my life in many ways. I am extremely grateful to be a part of such a tight knit  and diverse community that has given me the opportunity to grow not only academically, but professionally. So far I have been given the chance attend the Grace Hopper Conference, along with endless opportunities to network. One of my favorite parts of the program is the ability to reach out and spread my interests to others. Through programs like Cyber 101, I am able to give back and encourage high school girls to strive for careers in technology. With CWIT I know I will always have the support system I need to succeed in college. Whether it’s advice on what classes to take, networking tips, or time management, I know I can count on the program to be there for me. Through my time in college so far, my interest in cybersecurity has only grown, and I am beyond excited to see where the future takes me.
