Personal Biography

Why do you love UCI?

UCI has easily become my second home because of its community feeling. Although my college journey was anything but ordinary due to the pandemic, I can say that I’ve met some of my best friends on campus through different organizations/involvements, and even classes! I really appreciate how welcoming everyone here is – don’t be afraid to talk to the person next to you during lecture because they might just become your closest friend!

How can you be a successful Anteater?

Success looks different for everyone, but to give one piece of advice: don’t be afraid to ask for help! In any space you are in, most folks are super willing to help you, but you just have to take the initiative in reaching out and asking for guidance! Whether it’s directions on how to get to MSTB to solving integrals in Math 2B, everyone around you only hopes for you to succeed and will support you every step of the way.

At the end of the day, we all are huge advocates for your growth & learning and are ready to help you as long as you allow us to. <3

What is one fun fact about yourself?

I eat pretty much everything with chopsticks! It’s such a versatile utensil 😀
