Hello, my name is Prerna and I am a Computer Science major here at Portland State University.  I am interested in studying machine learning and data science. I am also interested in pursuing a PhD. There are a few things that I really like about being a student here. Our faculty are amazing and always ready to help. There are a lot of great student clubs at Maseeh College, too. I am the Vice President of the We in Computer Science (WiCS) group and have helped organiz our annual Hackathon. As an MCECS Ambassador, I get to interact with a lot of middle school and high school students. I enjoy organizing workshops to motivate them to pursue engineering and computer science. I also like leading tours for them.  My advice for someone starting out in engineering/computer science is to work on projects outside of school! This way you’ll constantly learn something new at your own pace and it will reflect well on your passion and interests.
