When I began college in 2002, I had decided that I wanted to major in digital communications.
It was a growing field, and the blend of English communications and the digital world intrigued me.
At the time, my father, who is avidly against computers, said he didn't understand the draw because "computers are going to be the downfall of the world."
I laughed at him in that moment, but 12 years later, his statement is coming true.
In today's world, you can't walk down the street without seeing someone glued to their smartphone or tablet.
