COMPUTER SCIENCE (CS) AND YOU
What have you learned working with this community? Has anything in particular surprised you?
I haven't been with the project long, only a couple months, but I love seeing how connected the community is.
What do you enjoy most about working on CS for All Teachers?
I've worked with most of the CS for All Teachers staff independently on other projects or events during the last few years, so it's wonderful to be able to join this amazing team and work with everyone together.

What is your first memory about CS?
I don't remember my first CS memory, but I first learned how to code Java in college. It made me wish I had the resources to learn coding earlier as a child.
Outside of CS for All Teachers, what types of projects do you work on?
I work on an array of projects around school violence prevention, healthy school environments and student academic success, and housing for runaway and homeless youth, to name a few. Most of my work in the past year has been helping teams pivot to online virtual events in place of in-person events disrupted by the pandemic.
What program or app can you not absolutely not live without? What makes it so indispensable?
I pretty much use YouTube every day. It's a great place to learn about almost anything, from cooking recipes to coding techniques. It also acts as an endless source of entertainment.
How do you unwind or recharge after a long day (week, month, etc.) of work? Any hobbies, special talents, or favorite vacation spots you'd like to share?
I am working towards a dual M.S. in Cybersecurity and IT, so a lot of my time is spent studying, or doing homework. When I do have free time, I mostly spend it playing video games.
