Elena Villamil-Rodriguez

Name:  Elena Villamil-Rodriguez
Hometown: Madrid, Spain
Major: Computer Science

The largest components of my life are my family, friends, values, golf and knowledge.

I never really knew exactly what I wanted to do, but I knew it had to involve golf and math. Pursuing these two objectives I earned a scholarship here at SMU as a member of the SMU Women’s Golf Team.

It wasn’t until my second semester here that I discovered the wonders of computer science.  The topic itself, the logic behind it, the teachers in the department and the cool things that coding allows you to do captivated me.  

Finally, what I would like to do in a future is to keep enjoying my family and friends while I work developing software in a way that has impact worldwide.
