Academic Status: Undergraduate student


My name is Mykala Rasae Wright and I am a 22 year old Senior, majoring in Computer Science from the Beautiful Windy City Chicago, Illinois.


My motivation is my family: I come from a family that is used to living in poverty. I wanted to be the change and focus on my studies so that I can be a mentor to the younger generation and a helper to the older generation, I want to show my family that the impossible to them is very possible with me being the first high school graduate and the first to attend college and graduate with me having one year left. I never in a million years would have imagined me interning with Argonne, this just gives me more motivation itself because it shows me that my hard work is paying off.
