In the future I would like to study Software Engineering at University. This is due to my interest in coding and problem-solving to design and efficiently implement a simple program or game that I envisioned.

I have also enjoyed several other computing related activities such as trips to a Cyber Security Challenge which helped me develop my Computational Thinking, Teamwork and Co-operation, Communication and problem-solving skills.
