Kenya Farmer Kenya Farmer, a native of Tallahassee, has always been fascinated with the way things work. She would sit and watch reruns of the A-Team just to see what plan the General was going to concoct to get his band of buddies out of trouble. She also enjoyed watching MacGyver for the very same reason. In 1997, she was introduced to the World Wide Web. It was her first year attending high school and she often found herself spending all of her spare time web surfing. Before the internet, the only interactive technology that appealed to Kenya was video games. During this time Kenya was just a bandwagon consumer of technology and she had no idea that that would soon change. Kenya decided to enroll in Florida A & M University the in fall of 2001. It took her three long years to finally major in computer science after a conversation with her mother. Kenya’s mother simply said, “You like computers, why don’t you major in that?” Kenya’s decision was confirmed when reminiscing on conversations she and her older cousin had about being video game designers when they were younger. That was the day Kenya discontinued being just a consumer of technology. Now she was going to be equipped with the tools to be a working part of technology. Ms. Farmer is scheduled to graduate from the major of her choice in the fall of 2007. She recently completed an internship with her home university’s web applications and development team. There she showcased her technical and logical skills as one of the most well prepared and well rounded interns among her colleagues: she was the only intern offered employment during the fall semester. Upon graduation Kenya will enter the IT field with a job that’s focused on application development or securing an IT infrastructure.
