Software Engineer, working in EdTech or somewhere cool like Google

College (Majors, Minors): I will be attending Brown University this fall (in a month!) and I will major in Computer Science or maybe even Applied Math- Computer Science Track. I might decide to do an education minor, but I've also heard that a Business minor is a really great minor to have in general. Other Education (Graduate School, Certifications, etc.): I know I want to go to graduate school, so I'll probably just get a Master's in CS or an MBA. Skills (Personality-Related, Tech-Related): I definitely want to develop communications skills more, especially written communication. I can make public speeches just fine, but somehow writing professional emails just seems to cripple me. I also want to shape up my skills in Java/Python/Swift, and learning Excel in-depth is on my bucket list. I've been told I'm terrible at communicating ideas via Powerpoint, so I definitely want to improve that. Activities (Study Abroad, Volunteering, Extracurriculars, etc): I plan to study abroad, hopefully in a Spanish-speaking country. Not sure where that correlates with software engineering, but I'll make it work. I also plan on joining the Women in CS organization, an acapella group, and whatever else interests me in college. I know that there are usually hackathons at colleges, and I always love going to those so I'll probably continue in college. Might start a drone club in college, even though I know absolutely nothing about programming drones- it just sounds really cool, and the idea has stuck with me for a while. Job Experience (Internships, Entry Level Roles, etc.): I have an internship with Career Village right now :) I got an offer for an internship with Symantec earlier this year so I will probably pursue that in summer of 2017. #computer-science #computer-software

I'm not quite sure at the moment. Either I'd be some kind of computer scientist/software engineer, a bioinformatician, or a pathologist. I know I want to be somewhere on that spectrum between computer software and biology, but I'm not sure where it is I want to be. I hope to figure out whether I want to pursue medicine before I have to study for the MCAT, otherwise I'll be studying and taking a 7 hour test for no reason and that's just no fun.

I'll be attending Brown University this fall, most likely as a Computer Science concentrator. I've already had an internship for three years learning anatomy and how to perform autopsies, so I will likely try to get a computer science related internship (possibly @Symantec, where I've received an offer kind of?). I might even take a gap year to pursue this internship, but I'm not quite sure yet. After that, I want to try and get some kind of research experience to see if the sexual harassment is as prevalent as I've heard, and to experience the life of a researcher slash bioinformatician. And after that, if I still can't decide what I want to do with my life, I will invest in a dartboard and pursue whatever my dart lands on. #computer-science #medicine #biotechnology #bioinformatics
