Class of 2015
Senior Project Manager
Life in T110 is a marathon. You’ll train for two years, and if you’re lucky, you’ll make it to the end. Everything you do in this class is done with a purpose; there is no step that does not contribute to a greater meaning. My life in T110 has certainly been a challenge at times, but ultimately one of the greatest learning experiences in my high school career. I’ve learned to be okay with not knowing everything about an assignment because sometimes, the best way to learn is to jump in and do. My fear of not knowing used to be debilitating at times, but I have become a stronger student in learning to disregard the anxiety and instead, use my resources to help me. The training that being a network assistant granted me has produced a tougher, more capable person. While I don’t necessarily see myself in a computing career in the future, the technical, professional, and people skills I’ve gained will serve me in my continued education and future career regardless of field or subject.
There is no other class I could take or job I could do that could compare to the experience of being a network assistant—walking in to this intimidating room, listening to the hum of the servers, and sitting at a computer for 90 minutes with the responsibility of creating and maintaining services for someone other than myself. I’ve met amazingly talented and inspiring individuals and been lucky enough to get to work with them and learn from them. I leave T110 as a changed person, ready to take on my future with more confidence and experience than many students my age.
