"This was a life changing experience. Making it all the way to the end took an extreme amount of fortitude. I gained an education in a year that would normally take multiple years as a traditional college student. I am glad I was able to return to Le Moyne College years after my summer classes on campus, during high school. I have a new perspective on the steps Syracuse is taking as a smart city. It is wonderful to experience first-hand how people from non-traditional backgrounds can join the effort to increase the pool of talent in the tech industry." - Tania
