My name is Edmalis Michelle Rodriguez Leon and I am currently a student in the University of Puerto Rico in Ponce studying Computer Science. I was born in Wiesbaden, Germany from a military family. Being born into an army family met moving a lot but I, in some way, liked seeing new places.
I leaved in Biloxi, Mississippi where I coursed kindergarten through fourth grade. Leaving there was fun because Mississippi is influenced by the Louisiana culture which meant Mardi gras was a big part of its culture. Fifth grade, I studied at the Pedro Melendez Public School in Santa Isabel, Puerto Rico. The reason I studied there was because my dad was stationed in Korea for that year and my mother decided to stay with my grandparents that year. After that, we moved to Fort Riley, Kansas were I coursed sixth to eight grade. There, I started playing the clarinet and took a course in computer basics. From ninth grade until present, I moved back to Puerto Rico. So, in high school, I studied commercial (“comercio”) which sparked my interest in computers and then decided to study computer science to see if that’s the professional field I liked to proceed.
During my three years in the University of Puerto Rico in Ponce, I have taken programming, administrative, and analytical courses that have helped me become more professional toward my studies. An analytical skill that helps me understands and manages the needs of the client, and also comprehends how to show others what the mission of the project is. Programming skills to create ways for the user to interact with the program and show different outputs based on how the user wants it. And administrative knowledge the helps me understand how the business world works and the steps needed to perform and complete a task or various tasks.
In the future, I like to work of the U.S. Army in one of their branches working with computer and server management. Maybe as a computer technician and work with maintenances in laptops, PCs and servers at any good company that can help feed my professional needs.
