Could you describe your role/what you do in 2-3 sentences?
I am a Cybersecurity Technician. I help my team safeguard information system assets by identifying and solving potential and actual security problems. My team and I upgrade systems by implementing and maintaining security controls.
How did you become interested in your profession as a career?
When I was 18 years old my roommate was working in IT and he taught me a few basic things and I found it really interesting. I started playing around with machines and decided I wanted to go to school to become an IT Professional. It took me a few years because I worked for a sales company and I was 26 when I started to go back to school to start my IT journey.

If you could have a superpower, what would you want and why?
