Personal Narrative: My Senior Capstone Experience

Good Essays
Pre-Experience Journal Entry
I was born to be an engineer. I grew up playing math games, building lego sets, and taking apart electronics. My Senior Capstone Experience (SCE) will definitely be in the area of engineering. More specifically, I would love to do either computer science or electrical engineering, as these are the areas I want to major in when I go to college.
I came to GSMST because I have always had an interest in engineering, and GSMST has only made that interest stronger. My courses have definitely played a big role. In 9th and 10th grade I took programming classes and really enjoyed them. They helped me to learn the basics of programming, and after that, I took it upon myself to learn even more programming knowledge and skills. Therefore, my classes helped me realize my love for programming, and the infinite possibilities I could achieve through it. My Junior Fellowship Experience (JFE) also helped me realize I

I live a really fast paced life and go from one thing to another to another, and I never really find myself with much time to sit down and reflect on the actions I have taken. Sometimes, I just reason out that instead of wasting time thinking about something that already happened, I can go be productive and worry about what is happening right now. However, this isn’t necessarily the best way to look at things. A lot of times, I find myself making the same mistakes over and over again, like working on DIY projects instead of studying for a test or over-committing myself. Maybe, if I sat down and thought about the causes of my problems, I could recognize how to prevent those problems from happening. During my SCE, I will make sure to reflect on the actions I take that lead to positives and the actions I take that lead to negatives. By the end, I want to be a lot better at not only realizing my mistakes, but actually taking action to prevent myself from making them

    From the array of experiences that has shaped the person I am, one index, in particular, will forever be cached in my memory. That memory is the feeling of building my first computer program "Caesar Cipher" in my first computer science class. Before I took my first college class, I built Honda engines and worked on cars. But computer science showed me I could do much more than use a Phillips screwdriver or an impact wrench - it taught me how to become a leader and that, with hard work, I can create something amazing. I am applying to the CSE program at UW Bothell because I want to keep creating amazing software and other applications and reach my goal of becoming a Software Developer.…

    Therefore I was never used to expressing formality since nobody really cared much with the solution, so my solutions tend to get a bit messy. I just solve each problem without a regard for proper formalism. I don’t even solve each problem step by step, sometimes skipping 1 to 2 steps. It may have been less accurate but it was a faster way of solving, it’s like a run and gun type of play. I have a difficulty in expressing my…
