Going into college I wanted to combine my love for music with my love for technology. Unfortunately, I didn't get into the school I believed would expose to me to the best of both worlds but that was ok because I still had a path I wanted to follow which was Computer Science.
My first year at Florida International University (FIU) was the first time I wrote a line of code, at FIU we were taught Java. I would be lying if I said I didn't struggle. I failed what was considered some major classes; for loops and array lists were a challenge. I dont remember how or when but at some point all the concepts just started clicking, and I felt like I just had climbed the tallest mountain. At this point I felt confident in my abilities, and wanted to help other students understand the concepts I once struggled with. I decided to become a tutor for students who were just starting out and that was very rewarding. While tutoring college students I was given the opportunity to tutor high school students that were taking the AP Computer Science Exam through Google Rise in partnership with Georgia Tech.
