Cyber Summer Program

May 2019 - August 2019 Fort Meade, MD
“What I loved most is easily the people and co-workers I met at the NSA, there are so many amazing people there. The second thing I liked the most is the culture, a big thing is to leave your work and career at your location and not mention or take anything home which is very relaxing and prevents overworking. I also really loved the location, Maryland is a beautiful state with plenty of activities and a variety of food. Especially when the food trucks and farmers market stops by, I loved those days. ”
