My name is Everlyne Kimani, am from Nairobi, Kenya. Currently I am computer science major and a rising senior at Benedict College in Columbia, South Carolina. After graduation I plan to pursue a graduate degree in the area of Human Centered Computing because I enjoy working on projects that focus on improving people’s life using technology. My previous research projects focused on applying emotional software agents in education and improving student’s self-efficacy using the agents. Besides research, I love watching movies, cooking and being around my friends and family.
