For me, computers have always been fascinating. From a young age, I was always unscrewing and opening things to see what was inside, trying to understand how they work. Over the years, this interest progressed, and the more I used computers, the greater my desire became to understand how they operate. I started taking my own computer and cell phone apart to repair them, and then started repairing electronics for friends.
After getting a basic grasp of hardware, software components became my passion. Soon I had decided that I wanted to choose software development as my educational path. I am enthralled by the idea of creating new and useful tools by coding. I am eager to further widen my base of knowledge in computer science, and I know that Georgia Tech is a great place to do so. For one, Tech's BS CS program does not only teach students the foundations of computer science, but also promotes problem-solving skills on the highest level, encouraging innovation and critical thinking. In the future, I hope to be able to make people's lives easier by developing user-friendly utility software, for example simple interfaces that help older people keep up with modern technology.
I am looking for the best possible education to become the best me, and I strongly feel GA Tech is the right place for me. Not only does the institution provide excellent academics, it also provides a diverse campus, allowing students to learn from and embrace many cultures different from theirs.
