Joining SWIFT has completely changed my career trajectory. I went from being a CIS student to landing a cybersecurity internship, becoming Director of SWIFT Labs, and being an accomplished penetration tester all within a year and a half. The most important part of my time at SWIFT is seeing the hard work build up to something greater. Being a penetration tester has been something I’ve been working towards since February, and this past November, I represented Cal Poly Pomona at the Collegiate Penetration Testing Competition and won 1st place in the Western Region.

Without my involvement in Students With an Interest in the Future of Technology I can guarantee with absolute certainty, I would never have been able to answer interview questions. My time as an E-board member of the student run organization has accelerated my cybersecurity knowledge through a variety of ways such as leading weekly presentations, generating cybersecurity based workshops, and generally fostering a community of individuals with a passion for the industry.
