My road in life has been direct.
Was a first-generation college student who was interested in math and science, but also loved art.
As she went off to college, her goal was to try to find a way to combine all of these interests.
Went to Stanford University, which has a flexible major program that let her try a few different things before she had to decide.
She’d never coded before college, but as she explored computer science classes, she realized it was the perfect medium for her to combine those interests.
Decided to concentrate on human-computer interaction, which let her bring her interests in art and design into the mix.
Her parents didn’t really know how to help her through college, but they always believed that she would successful and were supportive of her choices.
One resource she relied on instead was the National Society of Black Engineers (NSBE); she found mentors and friends who were going through similar experiences.
Says that the problem-solving skills that you learn as a computer science major are invaluable, no matter what career path you ultimately choose to go down.
