Emma Wolff, Mt Holyoke ’21, completed the Adjacent summer program in San Francisco in 2019. For their capstone project, Emma pitched an idea for an educational website about the constitution, which she and her team presented. As she writes,

As our group said its goodbyes, I felt blindsided by how much I’d grown. I left with a newfound love for coding and the logic inherent to software engineering. I found I love leading a team. I also discovered that in the world of software, learning isn’t limited to a formal class setting or dynamic. Once you know how to utilize the internet, nothing obstructs your path to knowledge. 

She returned to campus and switched her major from Arabic Studies to computer science and has accepted a software engineer internship with JPMorgan Chase for summer 2020.
