Alyssa is a senior at American Heritage School of Boca/Delray. She found her love for computing when she signed up for the Introduction to Programming Logic: Alice Programming class offered during her junior year. Alyssa quickly became adept with writing algorithms, interpreting computer logic, and using computing constructs to create sophisticated Alice animations. With the encouragement of her teacher noting her strong aptitude for computing, Alyssa decided to take Computer Science-Java programming her senior year. Alyssa is now in love with programming and is displaying her amazing skills in class every day. She cannot foresee life without computing. Code writing has come naturally to her and she plans to pursue a degree in computer science in college. After college, she plans on writing code for the rest of her life as well as becoming a good role model for girls so that they will pursue computing.
