File size must be limited to 1MB.

A little about me:

I am currently a student at the University of Maryland Global Campus studying a Master’s in Information Technology Software Engineering and want to transfer to ASU online. I have completed 6 graduate credits already and earned a 4.0 GPA. I would like to become a software developer because I want to help people out with the software I develop. I know computers are the future so they will be used to help out a lot of people who face challenges everyday. We all face challenges as a human being. Having software available to make life easier for others is the reason why I want to study a masters in computer science. I have 7 months of experience as a web developer for a University Human Resource website and a Non-profit that helps kids do things around the world. I know many languages and specialize in front end engineering. I would like to have a career in web development or mobile app development. I am also enrolled in One of the top coding Bootcamps call Lambda School where I will gain the knowledge to become employable as a web developer starting in the middle of January.

You can do some research about Front end engineering to include why my background is important as it supports my candidacy to the masters program in computer science. You could also conduct research on the future of information technology industry and why their is a need for more developers. I would also include that I am a minority and in the information technology industry minorities are underrepresented. Their is less than 5 percent of African Americans working in the information technology field. Basically explain why information technology is so important for the future.

If you could come up with more examples of why people have a purpose to study computer science you can include that in this personal statement.

If you have any other questions let me know
