How did your love for computer science begin? 

End of 8th grade, I was on Khan Academy doing math prep, and I saw a code JS course. It seemed really interested and I wanted to give it a try! I didn’t know too much but I completed the intro course that summer. I worked on it everyday and became proficient. Ever since then I have loved coding.

What are you working on right now?

I am currently enrolled in AP Computer Science where I am working on a bunch of cool stuff. I still work on Khan Academy assignments projects pretty often—it’s a lot of fun.

What's your favorite part about coding?

I am a very logical person, and I think writing out all of the steps and seeing a tangible answer,  and it’s always very satisfying. It might be odd but I think it’s fun!

How do you plan to use computer science in the future?

I want to continue my studies of Computer Science in college! I also want to create my own project that can be beneficial for my school. I’m considering coding an application to help my school’s lunch system be for efficient.
