The curiosity to know more about computers motivated me into getting certified in computer courses when I was only in the 9th grade. The course also aroused an intense desire to know more about computer science. I carried forward my high school level computer knowledge and scored 90 out of 100 in computer science at the pre-university level. This factor too motivated me to choose a career in computer science. Personal satisfaction has also played a key role in decisions relating to my career.
My interest in the Computer Science major at Carnegie Mellon was first piqued while I was in the Microsoft Student Partners Program, where I met a Technical Evangelist from Microsoft who graduated from the course. I had heard from him how the nation’s best graduates of Computer Science were often recruited from Carnegie Mellon. Naturally, this keen interest sparked off by my encounter with him did not just stop there as I am now sitting at my desk writing my CMU supplementary essays. As someone who has been trying to find myself within the tech sector in the future, Carnegie Mellon’s vast ties to the technology world only serve to underscore its appeal. When entering an industry that changes as rapidly as technology, the onus is on myself to ensure that I am up to date with
