My name is Marissa Reed. Currently, I am a senior at McKinley Technology High School in Washington, D.C. I will be graduating in June, with a 3.4 GPA, 315 community service hours; completed two Advanced Placement classes; along with honors classes and an internship with Enlightened Inc., a Cybersecurity/IT firm that I have built an amazing relationship with. When I first started researching schools, Temple University came up in my research because of the major I would like to pursue, MIS, the location, and the strong diversity union. This is the school I will be graduating from in 2021 with a BBA in Management Information Systems and I am very thrilled to begin a new chapter in my life.
