Why do you love UCI?

I love the University of California because they offer a wide variety of courses along with amazing professors who truly care for their students. UCI offers many opportunities that guides me to prepare for my future! Aside from academics, UCI has a beautiful campus with nature all around that relieves me from stress. Overall, UCI is amazing and helps everyone for their success!

How can you be a successful Anteater?

To be a successful Anteater one must focus on balance. Always take care of yourself by having a goal no matter how big or small. Academically, make sure to plan ahead with planners while including times, location, office hours, study groups, etc. It is very important to stay ahead especially under a quarter system! Finally, remember to make connections by joining clubs especially in UCI because there are many opportunities to network ranging from internships to long-lasting jobs.

What is one fun fact about yourself?

A fun fact about myself is that I love the gym, specifically powerlifting. The gym allows me to have a balanced schedule between my academic and personal life. Mental preparation is a major aspect of powerlifting which helps me overcome any fears, helping me grow stronger both mentally and physically!
