Edward Granlund is working towards a professional career in CyberSecurity. He is most recently involved with a Capstone Project which is an intensive experience during which students build a software system they intend to be secure, and then attempt to show that other students' projects are insecure, by finding flaws in them. Despite being a technology buff, in the digital age we live in, Granlund still has a sincere appreciation for meaningful conversations as they lead to meaningful relationships. He is an active member of the Carroll Community College Philosophy Club, and very much enjoys the groups' discussions. He is most passionate about developing his connections with family members as they have a profound impact on his life from inspiring to challenging him. His passion for building relationships with others has led to his desire to explore the world. As a travel lover, one of his favorite things is hearing perspectives from people of different cultures. It’s these experiences that have forced Granlund to change and grow as an individual.
