Thank you so much to KnowBe4 and the selection committee for taking the time to consider my application for the Women in Cybersecurity Scholarship and for awarding me the scholarship prize. I am incredibly honored to be provided such an amazing opportunity that not only supports my future four years in college, but also provides me the tools and certifications necessary to further my educational/career goals in cybersecurity and computer science. My future goals include becoming a computer research scientist by pursuing a master’s and/or Ph.D. with a focus on bettering cybersecurity and computer science educational platforms.
This scholarship will help give me the opportunity to continue my education in a field that I'm so very passionate about without the burden of financial stress and crippling student loan debt. I will be able to be the best mother I can be and continue to save money for my son's education while simultaneously still being able to pursue my own dreams in cybersecurity.
