In fifty words or less, describe yourself.

I am a passionate, driven person that likes to give my full attention to any project I am working on. Outside of school, I love to go hiking as a way to disconnect and learn as much as I can about the world through my podcast addiction.

What is the coolest thing you have done in your studies as a CM major?

When I got to work with a team of students to build an android application from scratch, and I go to spearhead my team’s JavaScript front-end work because of my experience with JavaScript from CM as well as the designing the interface of the app.

What are your professional goals?

I think I want to start out being a front-end software developer or product designer at a tech company, and go from there!

In one sentence, explain why students should choose the CM major.

For me, the CM major has given me experience in design and coding, so I have a wider variety of options when looking for jobs after graduation as well as being a well-rounded professional that can hop into multiple roles at a company.
