Kaizen Castanos, Daedalus Scholar, Class of 2020

Kaizen CastanosTell us about yourself:

I was born in the Philippines and moved to New York City with my family when I was five years old. During my time at Stuyvesant High School, I was exposed to an intellectually charged environment that encouraged students to fully explore and develop their interests. I naturally gravitated towards the computer science program. It didn't take me long to realize that I'm hooked. It has become my passion that I cannot even imagine myself having any other career outside of this field.

How has your scholarship helped you?

The Computer Science Scholars Honors Program gave me the opportunity to attend tech conferences and meet ups with other tech professionals which helped to fully immerse me into the encompassing world of tech. These experiences coupled with the challenging curriculum at Hunter keep me motivated and working hard towards my goal of becoming a software developer. It would have been harder for me to pursue my passion for computer science without the scholarship.
