Sarah Heiner

Major: Computer Science
Expected Graduation Year: 2017
CWIT Scholar, C14

Since coming to UMBC and joining my CWIT family, I have been encouraged to do my very best in all aspects of my life. I came to college knowing that I wanted to have a positive impact on the world, and now I am interning at MITRE, helping to create software that will someday mitigate cyber attacks that affect those on the front lines. I arrived here unsure of who I was and what I wanted to do with my degree, but thanks to the support of my friends in CWIT and some very practical advice from my professors, I now know that I am ready to go out into the world and make a difference. I am grateful to be a part of CWIT, and hope to continue to encourage diverse thinking when I enter the industry.
