What Do You Wish Someone Had Told You About Computer Science?

I recently ran across an article on EdSurge by Jasmine Tsai in which she states “The one thing that I wish I had known about computer science (and programming more generally) earlier is that it is a profoundly creative and interdisciplinary pursuit.” 

This is true! Perhaps you would have to experience this to believe it, but it got me to thinking: what should we be telling our ChickTech: High School girls about computer science? What do I wish someone had told me? (answer:  you don’t have to be a stereotypical geek to enjoy it). So here’s a question for you professional women out there who are already in the field — what do you wish someone had told YOU? E-mail your stories and experiences to [email protected] and we’ll feature you as a guest blogger in a future post.
