Chen, a student at Baruch College, said her goal is to pursue a career in actuarial science. However, it was an internship at Bank Street Head Start requiring computer skills that made her realize she needed to increase those skills in order to work successfully in her field of choice. She said the scholarship will help her pursue the training needed to successfully master those computer skills.
"This scholarship will help me gain the computer skills that are necessary in this technological world. This will help me gain confidence in my computer skills. It will provide me with the opportunity to explore the field in computer science," she said.
Sarder said Chen is making the right move in pursuing training to give her competence in computer skills. "Technology is everywhere, and computer skills are vital to so many industries. It's necessary to be proficient in a variety of technologies in order to keep up with the trends in business," Sarder said.
