Hi, I’m Laura!

I’m a senior at Northwestern University majoring in Computer Science in the McCormick School of Engineering and pursuing a Business Minor.

About Me

Some more details about me!

I was born and raised in Bogota, Colombia. Even though I attended one of the best schools in the country it wasn’t international and didn’t offer IB/AP classes. Nevertheless, I studied ahead, prepared myself for the SATs and went through college apps without much help from my school. I was accepted as part of Northwestern Class 2019 as a Mechanical Engineer, however, I fell in love with CS after my first year at college. I believe technology can have a positive impact on everyone around it and want to work towards making that a reality. I’m passionate about programming, technology and using it to help close digital bridges like the one in my country.
