Personal Statement

My name is Rodney White. I am very interested in the engineering field, specifically network engineering. I've had multiple internships at Cisco Systems doing various roles so I have a lot of experience. I currently work at CVS Pharmacy as a pharmacy technician. It's semi taken a toll on my studies because I am trying to pay my student account, while also completing computer science related courses. Since COVID started my mom has been laid off and my dad only works 3 days out of the week to limit the number of faculty at his job(Markham Courthouse). I believe this scholarship would benefit me greatly as I would have time to just focus on my studies and not worry about financial hardships.
