Although Kelly more recently became acquainted with computer science and programming, she has long been empowered by the fact that she has been the only girl in many of her IT classes. The days may have seemed long but the fact that she was aspiring to be something different from many other girls in her class has spurred Kelly to take on more IT challenges. After taking a networking class, she received a position as an IT intern in her school district. In her role as intern, she has become the communicator between the teachers and the teachers. Kelly is also an accomplished dancer and is captain of her school’s dance team and she strives to be a great leader. With her new-found love for programming, Kelly aspires to become a computer programmer in college.
