In 2013, I began another journey: a computer science degree. I started with free open introduction courses from Stanford, just for fun because I was bored. Then, I kept going… and going. In June 2017, I graduated with a Bachelor of Science in computer science. Software is the ultimate fusion of these two groups: { reason, logic, objectivity, precision } and { creativity, abstraction, expression }. Many might assume software and computers are too “mathy” or too boring for themselves. While there is some truth to that, coding can really give you a canvas to paint something. Did you dream up a big world in your mind? Try to make that a digital reality. You can also find yourself debugging for hours because you’re off by a margin of one somewhere.

Software is a:

  • Great challenge
  • Mental agility course
  • Blank canvas
  • Platform to help people
