Summary

As part of my high school career, I have rigorously prepared myself for a field of work in the field of computer science and computer networking through a combination of Advanced Placement classes and CTE classes, primarily Computer Systems I, II, and III. An additional benefit of taking the computer classes listed above is that, with the knowledge I gain in these classes, I am preparing for the A+ and Network+ exams. By passing these exams while still in high school, I could earn a job paying about $30,000 a year shortly after my graduation. My work-related goal involves avidly pursuing an IT career at a major technical firm such as NASA, Huntington Ingalls Industries, or Lockheed Martin.

Education

Sep 2010Present

Heritage High School

Having transferred from Warwick, I quickly overcame my uneasiness about attending a new school, thanks to warm, inviting, and even humorous teachers who made me feel at home. The magnet program I enrolled in, the Engineering and Technology Magnet, placed heavy emphasis on technology, academics, community service, and college preparation. Fortunately, the workload of AP classes I took there matched up to my expectations. I even managed to further develop my social skills and make plenty of amiable acquaintances in the AP programs with whom I could discuss my life events and problems.

Warwick High School

During my two years at Warwick High School, I first tasted a glimpse of the arduousness of college courses through the PreDiploma Programme, a preparatory program intended to ready candidates for the world-renowned International Baccalaureate (IB) program. Although I did not continue on into the IB program, I gained valuable time-management and work-study skills from this program taught mostly by no-nonsense teachers. Furthermore, I became exposed to various cultural backgrounds as part of the diversity of Warwick's student body, encountering students from Iran, South Korea, Brazil, and even Nepal.
