Professional Profile

My name is Dallas Turner and I am a Computer Science major currently at Longwood University. I am currently a senior who is in persuing  to graduate pretty soon and get into real world in working with computers.

In coming up through my child hood, I was always fascinated on how computers had worked. I loved to tinker with things maybe change one little thing such as a background picture on a desktop or the mouse point. Something so simple made me feel that I accomplished things all on my own and I felt that I made it.I never thought of deciding to be a computer science major until my senior year of high school when looking for colleges and what types of majors result it different type of jobs.

When it comes to personality, I am a very laid back, very easy to get along with type of person. I’m not one to argue but I will state my side of a point and able to deal with different views upon that with no problem at all. I do not mind stepping out of my boundaries to try different things at all, there’s nothing wrong in swaying from your routine every now and then to see what’s new.

When it comes to work, I like getting things done in a timely manner. I do not like to be late or even on time, I always like to get things a tad bit before its actually due. Hard work is what drives me, there is nothing easy and I’m always willing to do what is needed to get the job done. I do not really like things handed to me if I have not worked for it.
