Why Computer Science?

One of my favorite things about CS is the creativity that is involved in solving a problem. There are multiple ways to go about making something happen, and CS forces you to think more broadly to resolve an issue in the most logical/efficient way possible. 

I also love the people! I have met the most helpful/kind/amazing people going to CS related programs and it really helps to be surrounded by positive people who really want to help you learn!

I figured out my love for teaching when I became a chemistry TA for the Chancellors Science Scholars. Explaining a difficult concept in a simple way is, in my opinion, the best way to solidify an understanding of the material and I hope to learn more about computer science by experience as a UTA! In addition I am looking forward to the rewarding experience of showing a new student how amazing and fun computer science can be, and hopefully ignite a passion in some people to pursue it further!
