Computer Science When I was kid, I was always interested in science and technology and science was probably my most favorite subject back in elementary school. I’ve always been deeply interested in computers and knowing how they work and it all started with my dad, introducing me to the computer systems at his work place that first sparked this interest. I can always remember the feeling of wanting to know just how computers worked, why they worked and what else they could do. Now a days, the world of computers is growing at an un-recordable rate everyday and it would astonishing to get a chance to be in that world and experience it for myself. Computers are the most influential tools in our lives, they are our present and future and it's hard to remember a day when I'm not really using the computer, since I do my school work on it, surf the internet or chat with friends and just the amount of things you can do on a computer is just unbelievable. My first big achievement, that cost me pretty much my whole wallet, was building my own personal computer which has been my all time dream because iv been using my old laptop which couldn't carry out the tasks I wanted it to do but when it did, it it was doing it at a very slow pace. Building the computer was frustrating at first, knowing which wire connect to which, but at the same time, it was a fun and interesting experience that was worth every penny in my pocket. I've gotten plenty awards at my school like the "Perfect
Attendance award" which proves that I have been going to school every day and on time and it also really helped getting my first job at a grocery store, at which I am currently working at. I've also gotten two "Student of the Month" awards for April and May, which shows that the teachers have enjoyed teaching me through out those two months more than anyone else in the class and

    am personal. This is a statement that is very personal. If you see this, you are looking at my personal statement. How dare you do such a thing!
