Class of 2023
Daniel Boachie hails from Hampton, Virginia with an aspiration of becoming a computer engineer. From his childhood, Daniel has expressed interest in STEM courses and eventually became the president for Technology Student Association and vice president for CHROME Club in high school. Daniel further explored his passion for STEM through the summer academy at NASA Wallops Flight Facility, George Mason University's online Game and Technology Academy and his education at the Governor's School for Science and Technology at Lynchburg College. Daniel has received many awards for his academics, service and Chess competitions.
Understanding that life is better lived when he serves others, Daniel has been working with St. Vincent DePaul Catholic Church since 2015 to serve toys and clothes to needy families.
As he navigates the path to becoming a computer engineer, Daniel's short-term goal is to learn as much as he can from UVA, the Clark Scholars Program, mentors and internships. One idea that motivates Daniel in computer engineering is to research an app within the next decade that can help users to identify harmful radiation.
Motivated by the philosophy "carpe diem", Daniel aims to seize every moment to explore a world of possibilities, learn, and hone his leadership skills in twenty-first-century computer engineering.
