So here's the rundown.


In 2015, I interviewed for a professional development organization called Northland CAPS. I was accepted into the NCAPS program in the Fall of 2015. The NCAPS program granted me the amazing opportunity as a high school student to attain real world work experiences through internships and professional development courses.

While attending the Northland CAPS I really got into web development and started to learn HTML, CSS, Bootstrap, and JavaScript. During the program I realized I wanted to go to a University for a bachelor of science in Computer Science.


In 2017, I graduated from Park Hill High School and started my University search. I landed on Northwest Missouri State University and enrolled in their Computer Science program. For the next four years I mantained a job as the University's web assistant where I was tasked with creating e-commerce stores for the student body.


In 2020, I attended a couple different campus organizations including, AdInk. AdInk is a university organization focused primarily on the advertisement and broadcasting industry. I held a leadership role in the AdInk organization for two semesters. AdInk allowed me to network and connect with successful alumni individuals in the advertisement and broadcasting industry.


I am about to graduate with my bachelor of science degree in Digital Media Computer Science! I am so grateful to receive so much experience at Northwest Missouri State University. I had the privilege of learning web and app development, advertising and marketing, and even design. Northwest Missouri State also provided the professional tools and connections I will need when transitioning over to the real world.
