Community service was also highly important to her. Christiane’s computer science major and cognitive science minor have given her a strong academic foundation, and multiple internships, one in Rwanda, the others in the U.S., have given her the work experience she needed, including in IT, to decide on an initial career focus. As a result, she has already secured a post-graduation position as Associate Software Engineer for Anaplan in Austin, Texas.<br/><br/> Although she might not have anticipated it when applying to Beloit, Christiane has also developed strong intercultural communication skills through interactions with classmates, in her campus jobs and internships, and through the U.S. Department of State’s NextGen Coders Network. After participating in a NextGen Coders team that included students from Iraq, Palestine, and the U.S.., Christiane was invited to supervise multiple teams the following semester. In the process, she not only strengthened her communication, leadership, and problem-solving skills, but acquired valuable project management skills.<br/><br/> Ultimately, Christiane hopes to find ways to use technology to help Rwandans improve their lives. You are well on your way, Christiane!” -Elizabeth Brewer<br/></p></em><div class="m-3 clearfix"><a href="/commencement/senior-profiles/index.php" class="d-inline-block pull-right"><i class="fa fa-refresh fa-2x"/></a></div></div></div></div>
