Bryan Wilson’s “Flow Narrative”

Hey, everyone! My name is Bryan Wilson, but people commonly address me as “Wilson.” Currently, I am part of the freshman class of 2019 and I am attending FIU. Recently, I swapped my major from Computer Science to Information Technology (BS). Even though careers relating to STEM are high in demand, I realized I didn’t have a passion for programming or anything of that nature, so I wouldn’t have favor Computer Science. I chose Information Technology as a career field that would complement what I really want to focus on in the I. T. industry which is Computer Networking. In short, Computer Networking is a branch of I. T. that involves connecting computer networks together — depending on customer requirements — for the purpose of sharing resources. As boring as it sounds, it’s what allows society to access the Internet in the first place. After studying Computer Networking for almost two years, I discovered I had a niche for it among other things. It’s often taken for granted, but I find it to be one of the most interesting topics in I. T. because, similarly to Computer Science and programming, it requires a skillful mindset and creative thinking. Although it’s not taught in most colleges, I study Computer Networking outside my major through online courses and I’ve had experience through hands-on activities and a recent internship I participated in over the summer of 2015. Simply put, Computer Networking takes precedence over everything else, yet everything else in my life revolves around Computer Networking, such as my major in I. T.. It’s what keeps my tower of Jenga from falling apart, and I always win in Jenga. So knowing the opportunities I have now and the connections that I have obtained prior to attending college, there will be no disruption in my state of “flow.”
