    Malvern's Bio:
    I have heard that the average human being uses 10% of their brain's potential. Whether that's true or not, this blog is a mirror of at least part of my brain's functionality and activity. It is an outlet through which I share my experiences and escapades here at CSS. I hope that in between the mixed metaphors and rambling in my posts, you find something valuable. I have an overwhelming interest learning new things and expanding my horizons (which is why I am here). Wait, I just lost my train of thought... Welcome to my 'Pensieve' ~ thinking out loud..

2018 ACM Richard Tapia Conference

From September 19 Р22, I was in Orlando, Florida, attending the 2018 ACM Richard Tapia Celebration of Diversity in Computing conference. This was my second time attending the Tapia conference and first time being the only St. Scholastica student at the conference! Last year, I attended with Dr. Gibbons and three other students (one has graduated and the other two will be at the Grace Hopper Conference in Texas this week!!).

This year, I was able to attend the conference thanks to Affirm for sponsoring my travel and other expenses! At the conference, I met with some students I have participated in programs such as Code2040 Tech Trek and Facebook University for Engineering! I attended different workshops, career fair, and networking events. Above all, I got to take a cool picture with the conference’s namesake, Dr. Tapia!
