I was born

from Open High School, an alternative school for the gifted in talented,
in 2000. During my senior year, I was selected by school administration
and teachers as the "Open High School Scholastic Standout"
for the year 2000. I am currently working toward my Bachelor of
Science Degree in Computer Science at Virginia
State University located in Petersburg, VA. I am a member of
several professional organizations, including the Black
Data Processor's Association (BDPA), the Mathematics
Association of America (MAA),and the Association
of the Computing Machinery (ACM), as well as The Virginia State
University Honors Program. I was also a Provost Scholarship Recipient
and a member of Kappa Mu Epsilon (Math Honors Society). I have also
worked with third graders as a reading tutor and high school students
as a mathematics tutor.
After recieving my Bachelor
of Science degree, I plan to attend graduate school and work towards
a Master's degree and Ph.D. in Computer Science or a related field.
My research interests cover a wide range of subjects and include
Applications of Remote Sensing, Artificial Intelligence, Boolean
Algorithms, Human-Computer Interfacing, Biotechnology, Computer
I have acquired some
research experience via the Undergraduate
Research Experience in Ocean, Marine, and Space Science Program
at Elizabeth City State University
located in Elizabeth City, NC. There I worked on a research project
entitled "Science, Settlement,
and Remote Sensing: Locating the Remains of the Lost Colony"
mentored by Dr. Dwayne Williams. During
this experience I learned a great deal about the Computer Science
Field and its applications and picked up some skills that will be
HTML, boating safety and navigation rules, diagnosing watersheds,
UNIX Application usage, Macintosh Application usage, as well as,
general researching skills.
