Carrie Atkins

  • Cybersecurity Ambassador

Atkins is a UWF junior pursuing a Bachelor of Science degree in cybersecurity. After watching her father break flight simulator games throughout her early childhood, she developed a strong interest in technology. 

In high school, Atkins was often called upon to educate others on the importance of cybersecurity and got an opportunity to attend a Cybersecurity Summit that led to participation in numerous Capture the Flag competitions. As an ambassador, she is able to share her experiences with others.

“During GenCyber, I was helping Girl Scouts learn the basics of web hacking. I got to experience their excitement first hand when they solved puzzles they had previously thought impossible,” Atkins said. “I encouraged them to use their frustration as fuel and learn something new every day.”
