My name is Heaven Nicole Tate and I am from Portsmouth, Virginia and moved to Elizabeth City, North Carolina five years ago. As a student at Elizabeth City State University (ECSU) and a part of the Center of Excellence in Remote Sensing Education and Research (CERSER) many things have occurred prior to this achievement. The experience of participating in a variety of clubs and organizations in high school along with the leadership of Michael Reeves and Jasper Sawyer, opened my eyes to the world of computer science. These technology teachers were my mentors and helped support my passion and helped me see that the world is constantly evolving into more of a technological community. I am enthusiastic about being successful and motivated to try harder to gain my goals in life, which was what inspired me to join CERSER.
As a freshman at ECSU, being a part of CERSER under principal investigator Dr. Linda Hayden has is a privilege.  CERSER has introduced skills such as working with Dreamweaver, Photoshop, digital cameras, and Linux.
I plan on entering the computer science field when I complete my education. The plan is to work towards management in software development. My goal is to graduate from college with a 4.0 GPA and gain a Ph.D. in the computer science field.
