Professional Statement

Technology is always advancing and it has always kept my interest longer than any other field. My inspiration came from taking computer classes in elementary school. My teacher made technology seem like the most interesting tool to work with. Because of that influence, when I am working in the computer science field it never gets tiresome. That influence swayed me to major in computer science because it is something that I enjoy.

My name is Autumn Luke and I am currently a freshman at Elizabeth City State University (ECSU). Here, I participate in the Center of Excellence in Remote Sensing Education and Research Program (CERSER). I am also a member of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) and Geoscience And Remote Sensing Society (GRSS). I plan to take advantage of as many internships, conferences, and distinguished lectures as possible. Therefore I will acquire all the skills and knowledge I need to become a successful computer scientist here at ECSU.

I plan on using the knowledge computer aquired here in many ways after graduating from ECSU. In the words of Bill Gates, “The computer was born to solve problems that did not exist before”.
