What brought you to the Center for Technology in Government?
My desire to conquer my first hands-on experience, learn, take risks, try new paths, and accept hard technical challenges in a high-paced work environment, encouraged me to pursue an intern position in the IT field. I found my match when I met the CTG team and their goals. I am confident that I can enthusiastically contribute to CTG's mission.
What did you do prior to coming to CTG?
Prior to coming to CTG, I was studying at Northern Arizona University in Flagstaff, Arizona, since June 2014, as part of the Brazilian Scientific Mobility Program (BSMP), an exchange program.
What are your plans/goals for the future?
My career goals include mainly software engineering and web development. Although, I believe I still have a lot to learn and explore throughout the IT field. I am also passionate about teamwork and leadership. After I graduate, I want to focus on a Master’s degree in Information Systems or a MBA.
How can CTG help you reach your goal for the future?
CTG provides me many opportunities to explore and learn different technologies and real time problems beyond the academic settings, in addition to being an international experience. In addition, I can count on an incredible team of mentors and coworkers. This internship is the perfect first step to achieve my professional and personal objectives.
