Why I love completing the CyberStart challenges

Why I love completing the CyberStart challenges

This is a guest post written by Elle Renshaw, who is part of the CyberStart America program.

I love CyberStart so much! It’s the one place that I feel like people have similar interests as me

We caught up with CyberStart player Elle to find out why she enjoys playing CyberStart, how she tackles a tricky challenge and how persistance is key in cyber security!

I found CyberStart a few months ago and I love it so much. It’s incredible and the CyberStart community is literally so fun. It’s the one place that I feel like people have similar interests as me and we can support eachother with the challenges!

As much as I love CyberStart, some of the challenges can be really tough and it doesn’t come easy. Here’s what happens when I am faced with a tough challenge!

CyberStart challenge brief

So, yeah, that’s where I am now. Don’t give up when you are faced with a challenge you don’t understand. The thrill of getting the answer is the best feeling in the world!

I am currently looking to master Linux terminals and command injection because I struggle with those right now. I know if I keep playing CyberStart, I’ll get it eventually!
