picture of myself

Hi! I'm a Computer Science student at the University of Waterloo.

I love working on projects that directly help people and promote social change. My career goal is to develop software to better people's learning experiences. I want to help improve the education system and society's attitude towards learning so that people's intelligence and curiosity can be fostered.

My main interests are Computer Science, music, education, leadership, and social justice. I am currently organizing StarCon (a technical lightning talk conference in Waterloo) and maintaining mathsteps (an open-source algorithm that solves math step by step).

Some exciting things I've done recently include being an active member of Waterloo's Women in Computer Science committee, student conducting the Waterloo University Choir, running a choir of my own, and writing a guide to applying to internships.

There's so much I want to do.

I've interned with Chrome Accessibility, Youtube Kids, Khan Academy, Socratic, Joyable, and Asana.

Next up: graduate in May, cross some things off my bucket list, and work somewhere that brings me joy and makes the world a better place.
