Major: Computer Science

Why I Chose Northwestern:

Other than its close location to home (and the lake view), Northwestern’s emphasis on research and their dedication to their students personal growth had a really big impact on my decision.
Additionally, I toured multiple college campuses throughout my senior year, but for some reason Northwestern’s campus gave me a feeling of home, like I truly belonged here. Therefore, I decided to place it as the top choice for my QuestBridge rankings list.

What I plan to do after graduation:

I really hope to be able to get a job soon after graduation, and then some time in the future complete my studies in something more specific like Cybersecurity or Artificial Intelligence.
