RTEN Announces 2016 Scholarship Recipient:
My career goal is to get my Associates degree in Science from Western Nevada College and then take a few more credits emphasizing Computer Science classes such as Physics and higher Math all the way up to Differential Equations and Linear Algebra. I plan to sign up for Graphic Design classes along with Computer Science classes which will help me in my current Western Nevada College (WNC) work-study job in Computing Services which is to update all scholarships and other data on the WNC's WestNET while the Web Master develops a new website for WNC.
After completing my classes here at WNC, I plan to transfer to University of Reno (UNR) to get my Bachelor's degree in Computer Science with a minor in Business & Graphic Design. My previous goal was to get back into the Nursing program, but due to medical issues in my family, I had to change my career from medical to business field.
Last summer, after attending NEW Leadership in Las Vegas and after talking with Jacklyn Cobbs Fuller, it became clear to me to pursue a Bachelors in Computer Science field for which I am taking Physics and Math classes to complete my Associates of Science from WNC. I'm glad that I did not stop persevering in pursuing the goals in my life for the future of my family! Having an Associate's degree first and then continuing to work on to getting a Bachelor's degree will mean a big financial security for my family. My ultimate objective is to obtain a degree, which will open the door to a fulfilling career and a higher-paying job and my dream to start my own business someday!
