Anna is a senior at New Century Technology High School, a STEM magnet school. Here she learns about cyber security, networking, programming, engineering, and more. She is very involved in Cyber Patriot, a cyber security competition - last year she was the captain of an all girls team! She used to hate programming, but this year she learned that it's actually amazing. Thus, she plans to attend college to study both cyber security and programming to figure out how to protect people in an unconventional way. She also aspires to travel the world and pet at least 1,000 dogs. Anna enjoys helping out in her community by leading at summer camps, building wheelchair ramps for those who can't afford them, teaching robotics and computer science, picking up trash, and performing spontaneous acts of kindness. She is proud of herself and her friends for sticking with computer science even when it got tough, and for never losing their character.
