Receiving the SWSIS Scholarship means more to me than just the financial support. Receiving the recognition and support of the ACSA makes me feel even more determined to complete my degree in Computer Science with an emphasis in Security. This fall, I have the opportunity to study abroad in Stockholm, Sweden where I will also take more security courses. Having this scholarship is making that dream of mine a reality. Taking security courses at Cal Poly and having internships on security teams is amazing, but now I will have the opportunity to learn from security professors from around the world. Thank you to everyone who works so hard to continue supporting the women in the computer science and security fields.
