What excites me the most about Cybersecurity is using all the fascinating security technologies to fortify a system to prevent and detect cyber attacks. For me, Cybersecurity is more than a career; it is a passion. Reducing cyber attacks would allow the community to save substantially while reinforcing the protection of data its consumers deserve. This program would afford me the freedom to break through socioeconomic barriers that have previously stunted my ability to advance the tech skills necessary to pursue my goals.

Earlier this year I decided that I wanted to take some different steps with my career. I wanted to try something new, but I wanted it to align with my interests. I put a lot of thought into pinpointing the aspects about my job that I really enjoy.After doing some research and job shadowing, I came across data analytics by chance. I feel it’s a good fit because it combines my interests of problem solving and working with data. As I set out to learn another new skill, I have some of the same feelings of excitement and nervousness as I’ve had when I changed roles over the years. I’m looking forward to the change of pace.
