I applied to go to GHC with Duke because I wanted to learn more about the tech world and I would have to say it was the right decision. The GHC helped me become more confident about my qualifications but also showed me that I have a lot of work to do to stay competitive in the tech world. Since I recently decided that I wanted to pursue CS I still do not know what aspect of CS excites me the most and I have been very nervous about that. However, GHC had very helpful sessions like speed mentoring where I met several women who offered advice about how I can find my niche in the tech world. Also, the Career Fair provided tangible examples of what my role in CS can be.
Thank you to everyone who made this trip possible. GHC has been a very helpful and memorable experience!
