My Life // Computing

Computing for me has always been an outlet of creativity and a way to think critically about problems around me. I am always astounded at the infinite possibilities of what I can do with simply the laptop that I carry in my bag everyday, and an internet connection. My thirst for knowledge grows by building skills that allow me the possibility to create new things by ‘talking to the computer’. Natural inquisitiveness has colored my everyday life. I often pause to consider how the tools I use on a day to day basis are created, the implications of computing on my life as an individual, and societal implications of who creates technology and the purpose of its creation. The effects and products of computing are vast and far reaching; something that I create today can instantly reach others with the click of a button. Consequently, computing is like an accessible super-power that should be used to inspire creativity, communicate important ideas, and effect change in the world around us.
