I really wanted to pursue my career in Computer Information Technology, so I decided to go back to a four-year university and to pursue my bachelor’s degree. Computers are very challenging, and I have loved working with computers ever since I was a teenager. The courses I’m taking will definitely help me grow mentally, and grow as a whole because I will be taking on something new, and it will be out of my comfort zone. My major is Cyber security with a minor in Homeland Security. When I graduate college, I don’t want to end up at a boring desk job staring at a computer screen for 8 hours. If I am going to be dealing with computers then I want a job that will give me excitement and new challenges on a daily basis. So that is why I chose the Cyber security field.

During my future career, I plan to develop computer programs and mobile apps for young cancer patients. Hopefully by that time, I will have my own cyber security company up and running and will be able to start a non-profit organization. My non-profit will offer scholarships to high school and college students with cancer. I will also provide them with mobile apps that will help them on a day to day basis while dealing with the disease. I am a cancer survivor and I want to make things a little bit easier than I had it for those students.
