Hello, I am Saeeda Ullah and I am a junior at Democracy Prep Charter High School.
Three adjective describing yourself.
I would describe myself as determined, adventurous, yet timid at times. I consider myself determined because when I set my mind to do something, I am willing to overcome any obstacle that I may encounter. For example, I didn’t know anything about coding but I thought I should try it and now I enjoy coding because it’s really fun and cool. An experience where I presented my determination and adventurous attributes is when my friend and I decided to make a petition in my school to create a girls’ soccer team. We were surprised to see our success and how many girls were interested in playing soccer.
Why should a company hire you?
A company should hire me because I am an independent and dependable person. Although I may be shy at times, I have no problem asking others for help when needed for either some assistance or help with a problem.
What do you plan on studying in college? (How can you use coding while doing that job?)
I’m not really sure what I want to study in college. I have an interest in photography, so I would love to use coding to design a website in order to present and edit my photos to potential customers. I know that I will use coding in whatever field I end up going into.
Discuss your achievements, dreams, hopes and goals.
One of my wildest dreams would be to become a viral YouTube videographer. Not many people are actually interested in the job and so when I started watching YouTube in 2009 I immediately felt a pull towards making videos. I started making videos last summer but was unable to make more videos. I also didn’t plan very well because I thought it would be simple. Now I make scripts for every video idea I have and I’m beginning to make more videos again. Although I’m not yet a huge video maker like the people I look up to, I am hoping that one day I will be able to meet the people who have inspired me and caused me to realize this hobby that I enjoy.
What do you hope to gain in Career/Interactive internship?
I hope to gain more knowledge on how to code so that I don’t feel as confused as I am. I would like to improve my coding skills so I may feel more confident when writing codes. Also, I would like to see if I should plan on majoring on computer science in college by learning more coding and its career field.
