Personal Biography

Why do you love UCI?

I love UCI because of the community. The community encompasses many things including students, student organizations, clubs, faculty, and there’s always going to be a group of people that you’ll be able to mesh with. UCI is a place where you can get engaged intellectually and socially. The location is also amazing; we’re close to the beach, close to LA, and in one of the safest cities in the US.

How can you be a successful Anteater?

There are countless ways to be “successful,” but one way is to step out of your comfort zone! Don’t be afraid to try new things. You’ll be able to accomplish a lot more than you thought you were capable of, and there’s no better place to do this than college!

What is one fun fact about yourself?

I was born left-handed, but for one reason or another, I used my right hand for almost everything. So now, I write with my right hand, but still kick with my left leg.
