Parents: Mike and Amy Insalaco, Spanish Fork.

I fell in love with computer technology one day when I was eight years old. I accompanied my father to work and job shadowed him at the MTC in Provo. I was fascinated with the language teaching and learning tools that he was developing.

One of the many things that have intrigued me the most about computer technology is the diversity of the discipline. No other industry is so broad. With skills in computer technology, a person can develop apps for education, for entertainment, or for personal improvement. Graphic designers, animators, web developers, and so many others must have strong computer technology skills.

SCHOLARSHIP: Cumulative GPA is 4.0; 29 composite ACT; 1 class ranking.

AWARDS AND ACCOMPLISHMENTS: National Semifinalist in the Broadcom Masters National Science Fair. Honor roll student 2015-2019.
