Gabriel Fernandes
Gabriel is pursuing a Bachelor's of Computer Science from The Federal Institute of Espírito Santo in Brazil.

What brought you to the Center for Technology in Government?
My main goal professionally at the moment is to expand my knowledge and explore the Computer Science field. Being able to combine that with real world experience while also working for the community was a great opportunity to me.

What did you do prior to coming to CTG?
I am currently pursuing a Bachelor's of Computer Science in Brazil and intend to graduate in December of this year. I've been in the United States since August of 2014 through the Brazilian Scientific Mobility Program (an exchange program) and was studying at Boston University for the past two semesters.

What are your plans/goals for the future?
While I still haven't narrowed down to a specific sector of the Computer Science field, my main goal for the upcoming years is to continue gathering as much experience as I possibly can. This will allow me to have a deeper understanding of the field as a whole and will help me to best apply my knowledge to the industry.

How can CTG help you reach your goal for the future?
CTG offers the opportunity to not only obtain technical experience but also to implement it in the government or the public sectors. This will provide me with a unique experience which will help me prepare for my career.
