Professional Statement

My name is Anthony Scott and I am a rising junior at Winston Salem State University (WSSU) with the goal of obtaining my Bachelors of Science degree in Information Technology (IT). I have always had an admiration for technology. My interest for technology dates back to middle school where I received my first handheld computer, which was the PAQ h4150 Pocket PC, for word processing and spreadsheets. Besides using my handheld computer for schoolwork, I enjoyed exploring every aspect of the device. As I grew older my admiration for technology grew as well. Since, I have continued my journey to pursue a career in the technology field.

 As I began college, I chose to major in information technology due to my passion for computers. Upon completion of my sophomore year, I received valuable information about the Research Experience for Undergraduates in Ocean, Marine, and Polar Sciences. I was accepted into the program at Elizabeth City State University (ECSU). During my research at ECSU I was working on the Antarctic Team, my mentor was Mr. Michael Jefferson Jr. The purpose of the research was to conduct a validation of the Antarctic Snow and Ice Accumulation Discharge Basal Stress Boundary (ABSB) vs. the natural basal stress boundary (NBSB) along the George VI Ice Shelf.

The ASAID BSB was created by a team of researchers headed by National Aeronautics and Space Administration Goddard Space Flight Center (NASA GSFC), with an aim of studying coastal deviations as it pertains to the mass balance of the entire continent. The point data file was aimed at creating a replica of the natural BSB. Select cloud free Landsat satellite imagery from satellites 1 through 7 was used to detect changes occurring over the span of 12-19 years. The United States Geological Survey (USGS) online archives of Landsat imagery through the Global Visualization Viewer (GloVis) ( and Earth Explorer ( browsers were used to locate the cloud free Landsat satellite images. The last major interest in the study included documenting the deviations or incorrect placements of the ABSB vs. NBSB.

After I obtain my BS degree in Information Technology I will continue my education in graduate school where I will obtain my master’s degree in Computer IT. I want to enhance my knowledge further and ultimately pursue my doctorate degree in IT. My goal is to become a CEO of a computer company that provides resources and software for other companies.
