Personal Statement: 


Computer Science is a career that is experiencing a lot of change right now. So much time is being spent on improving the technology we already have and creating new technology to improve lives and make things better in ways that we couldn’t have imagined 50 years ago. I love the opportunity that computer science has given me to participate in the innovation and change that is occurring. In this field, I feel that I can make the most difference. I have already seen with the iOS application, websites, and other projects that I have been a part of that technology can truly influence and change the lives of people all around the world. With computer science, I am not limited to influencing only the people at home, work, school, or the social circle that is around me, but I can affect people that I don’t even know and have never met before. I also am passionate about helping women to feel like they can be involved in this technical change too. I am a member of the Women Tech Council in Utah, and with that, I want to help women and girls feel empowered to overcome stereotypes and help them know that they would add so many good things to any industry that they decide to be in.
