Currently, I am a Freshman Undergraduate Student at Elizabeth City State University in Elizabeth City North Carolina. I am from Philadelphia Pennsylvania. My major is Computer Science with a minor in Geographical Information Systems and Remote Sensing (GIS). It is my desire to obtain a Bachelor of Science degree in Computer Science followed by a Master of Science degree in Computer Science. Once this is complete, I will pursue a Ph. D in Computer Science. During my undergraduate career I plan to advance my education in the computer science field by taking part in internships as well as research projects.

This semester in CERSER we had a lot of training. First, we learned how to use a digital camera, they wanted us to learn how to use the cameras so that when we on conferences and trips we would bring back good quality picture to put on the NIA web site.
