Biography: I transferred to the University of Illinois from the University of San Diego this past fall (2019) and from Lake Forest IL. I've been very satisfied with my Information Sciences courses and professors, and I am excited to continue my education at the iSchool.
Why Information Sciences: What is unique to the information sciences major is we are also taught how to think about the applications of social informatics to be able to make ethical decisions concerning privacy, use, extraction and distribution of the information acquired from data. In my future career I would like to conduct data analysis to make business decisions or find the need for new products and services. My interests vary greatly and I hope to hone in on them as I continue to learn more about information science.
