What Inspired You to Continue Your Education?

“I want to take what I have learned about mathematics and computer science and use it to help people and affect positive change in the world. I feel that in order to achieve this goal there is much more that I need to learn. I do have a lifelong love of learning, so although five-to-seven more years of school is daunting, I am also quite excited to tackle the new challenges ahead.”
