I am Aisha Balogun, and I'm from Ilorin, Nigeria. I graduated last year from the University of Wyoming (UW) with a major in Computer Engineering and minors in the Honors Program and Computer Science.
How I chose my school
There were a couple factors that had an impact on my decision to study at UW. I had an older brother at UW at the time, and I believed UW had a great, world-class engineering program. The tuition was also more affordable than other colleges that I had applied to so it all seemed like a no-brainer for me.
Photographing my life
My favorite activity in Laramie, Wyoming, is taking pictures for my photography page on Instagram (@aishabjr). I had recently ventured into photography and was trying to find beauty in everyday views, and Laramie turned out to be a great place to do this. I have pictures from the railway bridge downtown, the half-acre gymnasium on campus, and even the parking lot at my previous apartment.
From internship to career
For my internship, I conducted my research in relation to the field of microcontrollers. My employer mentioned that my classes and research experience from school helped me to excel in technical aspects of my internship, which has led me to my career today.

The University of Wyoming is located in the heart of the beautiful Rocky Mountains with more than 200 majors to choose from. For more information on support for international students at the University of Wyoming visit http://www.uwyo.edu/iss/. The world definitely needs more Cowboys like Aisha!
