I took every opportunity that came my way in high school. As a result, I graduated as valedictorian, ran with varsity crosscountry, led buildOn as a global education officer, tutored at Bayview Beacon, and volunteered with Reading Partners.

As we like to repeat at every ceremony and event, UC Berkeley is the #1 public school in the world. Through participating in on-campus activities, working at internships, and making a lot of mistakes during college, I took large leaps in discovering myself and my purpose.
After a lot of contemplation and multiple major switches, I settled on Cognitive Science, a very interdisciplinary major suiting my interdisciplinary and multifaceted background. Within Cognitive Science, I had a concentration in psychology and computer science.

This was my first internship at a company that wasn't an early stage startup, which meant I gained a deeper understanding of the standards within the industry along with how to navigate a larger codebase worked on by a larger team. Read more about what I did.

Stowk was an interesting ride for many reasons. It was a very early stage startup, and I had to wear many, many hats, over time going from intern to frontend part-timer to full-stack engineer to team lead. There were ups and downs, late nights, and funding stress, but I not doubt learned the most from this experience out of everything else. Read more about what I did.

My first real development job I snagged in fall of college sophomore year right after self-learning how to code in the summer. I shoved my foot in the door of the software industry, and I am forever grateful for the opportunity and my manager who was super supportive. My journey began here. Read more about what I did.

"AAA is where I made 90% of my friends" is a line I've heard from more than a dozen people, including myself. While a lot of my other experiences are technical and targeted towards a career in software engineering, this experience stands out as leadership, and community-focused. Read more about what I did.

Becoming instructor for Fall 2018 after TAing for Spring 2018 was an honor and a challenge. During this time, after years of using outdate resources, we took it upon ourselves to revamp the curriculum, website, lecture materials, and class resources while also preparing for a new semester of 120+ students and training the new cohort of TAs. It was chaotic, but ultimately very fulfilling. Read more about what I did.

This was my first experience volunteering for a nonprofit using tech. This foray taught me nonprofit administration and teams operate very differently, and the same knowledge found within the tech industry cannot be expected, but it is possible to be productive in spite of that. Read more about what I did.

Stop Bot is a message moderation bot for Discord. Though it began as a joke between friends, I realized it had the potential to be really useful for others and developed it into a general message moderation bot. Currently, it is active in over 2,000 Discord servers with 90,000+ users.

The project was a weekly newsletter that sends political articles subscribers will disagree with in order to foster more open-minded dialog. I built a website for hosting the survey and a backend for automatically categorizing subscribers and assigning MailChimp tags based on survey answers.

This one is a little embarrassing since I built it when I was first learning how to code, but I tried my hand at building a Chrome extension, a new tab page. This custom new tab has a to-do list, weather, and top news articles of the day.
Some random quotes I like.
