Why Information Sciences: I am interested in information sciences because I believe it is important to understand the relationship between people, information, and technology.

Essentially, information is everywhere, and it carries into everything you do on a daily basis. I am specifically focused on data analytics because I want to be able to give numbers meaning and present them in a way that is understandable to everyone.
