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?

In my free time, I like to produce music and talk about music production!
