Harlem What happens to a dream deferred? Does it dry up like a raisin in the sun? Or fester like a sore
Why this Dream
My name is Matthew, and I was born in NJ, and I have lived in NJ our whole lives. My mom was also born in NJ, but she and my dad lived in CA for a few years. My dad grew up in Queens NY. He is an actuary for MetLife. My brother goes to colledge at the University of New Haven.
Obstacles to My Dream
My dream is to become a computer scientist, and develop video/board games. Computer scientists program code to create software using different programming languages. They also work with board game designers to develop mechanics, layout, etc.
How I will Achieve this Dream
This is my dream because I have enjoyed playing video and board games my whole life, and have always wanted to create one of my own. I also like working with computers and learning computer languages. Most computer scientists are also paid well.
A Raisin in the Sun
There are many great colleges with computer science majors, however most are expensive and difficult to get into. They require near perfect SAT scores and high GPA. There are also numerous tech schools in California, however I do not want to live that far away from home.
To achieve this dream I will work hard in school, especially in computer classes. I am going to take review classes for the SAT to insure I get a high score. I will find a college that I like and continue to work hard to learn about game design and computer science.
