I came from a high school that was oriented toward engineering, but lacked computer science.

I came from a high school that was oriented toward engineering, but lacked computer science. I knew I wanted to do programming because all these new technologies relied on software so I said to myself, why not go into computer science, I mean, hardly anyone around my area or the students that graduated my high school already went into that field so I went into college not knowing any programming. I was originally a computer science and engineering major at UCLA, but after taking physics (yes I already knew by then that I didn't like circuits and thus, electrical engineering), I knew that the electrical engineering portion of the major just did not interest me and after taking logic design, I was right and switched to full computer science.\
I like to code for a purpose, make things, want to pursue a job in where I can help a company make something that would help people with their everyday lives. I really do not like tests however and rather have a course with just programming assignments because I feel that is where you hone your skills and I am much better in that area since I'm not under such time constraints, but anyone can argue that everyone else in the major has to deal with this as well.
The projects I did for my classes are uploaded to my github so anybody can see what some of the projects we did entail. Some projects required project partners because they were big and I enjoyed working on my projects with them.

Full Stack Developer @ Helped develop and maintain an academic web application where professors could check college students’ attendance via geo location. Also implemented graphs for the attendance data sorted by percentage, months, universities, and users. Helped create a messaging system, payment gateway, basic security checks, and implemented design layouts via front end development. From March 2015 to September 2015 (7 months) Member @ IEEE C3 is a new student organized club here at UCLA that promotes coding competitions since UCLA lacks a club that involves CS majors doing software design. Some of the following code competitions that took place were about:
