What brought you to the Center for Technology in Government?
I found out about CTG through a recruiter at the University at Albany campus. What attracted me most was its focus on improving government issues through technology innovation and its vast research programs. When I learned that CTG was offering internship with the web team, it seemed like the perfect opportunity to gain real world experience and improve my skills.
What did you do prior to coming to CTG?
I came to the United States in 2010 to pursue my undergraduate degree. I attended Siena Heights University in Adrian, Michigan for a year before I transferred to the University at Albany in 2011. Since then I have been working towards my BS in Computer Science and Applied Math while working part time as a sales associate.
What are your plans/goals for the future?
Upon completing my undergraduate studies, I plan to enroll in the graduate program at the University at Albany and pursue a MS degree in computer science. Afterwards, I want to pursue a career in software development/engineering.
How can CTG help you reach your goal for the future?
Interning at CTG will provide me with professional experience as well as valuable new technical skills that will be useful in my education as well as future career.
