Computing Research Association for Women DMP

Thank you for allowing me to participate in this program! If you had told me as a freshmen (or even last year) that I would be participating in a summer research program, and it would be fun, I would have thought you were nuts! I have always known how important internships were for experience, but this has been truly unique and fun! I already feel more prepared for my senior year and also a lot more confident in applying for graduate schools! Thank you so much for choosing me out of so many well deserving students!

My Mentors & Lab Friends

It has truly been an honor working with you and absorbing as much knowledge as possible! Through the simple mistakes of basic Unix commands to trying to get the repositories to transfer, it has truly been a blessing and honor just to have met you all! I know that adjusting to a completely new environment and everything really, would have been extremely hard without each of you! Thank you for always being understanding and making this summer an unforgettable experience!

My Southwest Baptist University Professors

Thank you for putting up with me for these two years and pushing me to achieve more than I ever thought possible! I am taking your lessons and putting them to work! I have a lot yet to learn, but I know this summer research program has been preparing me for my senior year! I have realized it takes more than just education, it takes confidence. Thank you again for pushing me towards success!

My Family

Thank you for listening to my frustrations and allowing me to throw my ideas off you...even when you had not the slightest idea of what I was talking about! Your words have been inspiring and instilled in my heart. I am blessed to have such an amazing family! Thank you for your love and encouragement that daily motivates me to strive for dreams I once thought impossible! I love you!

My Best Friend

Last on the list, but first in my heart! I am so thankful for the unsurmountable blessings that God has given me! Without his strength and wisdom guiding my heart I could never have come this far! He has become more than just a part of my life, but the very essence of it! To my first love who has carried me through the trials I faced this summer and has continued to be my best friend when I felt completely alone! Thank you for the blessings, protection, peace, and undconditional love you have given to me! I love you with everything that is within me!
