Personal Biography

Why do you love UCI?

I love UCI because of the campus culture. The campus itself is beautiful and a simple stroll through Aldrich Park is enough to take some of the stress of school off your mind. The occasional (and plentiful) Petr drops are always a rush of adrenaline when you decide to sprint across campus to get the latest new sticker. Even on its gloomiest days, UCI is always such a beautiful campus to be at.

How can you be a successful Anteater?

Take advantage of the resources that are available to you and start work early! This is probably some of the most commonly given advice but it’s for a good reason. Your Professors want to help you learn and pass their classes. Take advantage of their discussion sections, office hours, TA hours, tutoring etc. Not only will you get to know your educators better, you can use their time to strengthen your knowledge on the topic and get FREE help on your assignments.

What is one fun fact about yourself?

I really like working with all different kinds of tech and making my own!
