B.S. Information Systems (Fall 2021)
B.S. Engineering and Public Policy
I am currently a junior at Carnegie Mellon University.
To create an innovative world, I believe there must be an interdisciplinary intersection of ideation, implementation, ethical evaluation.
For me, my minor in Human-Computer Interaction provides me with an education filled with a creative breadth, my Machine Learning minor teaches me the technical depth, my undergraduate degree in Information Systems provides a strong intersection, and my double in Engineering and Public Policy incites me to question a philosophical and ethical lens of humanity.
I strive to contribute to the advancement of diversity, equity, and inclusion through social computing, community service, and meaningful relationships to understand the social implications of technology.
Through my research in CMU's HCI Learning Sciences Lab, this explores the fairness and biases in educational technologies, taking an interdisciplinary perspective of design, technology, social, and ethical lens.
“The Last Airbender” is my all-time favorite childhood TV show. So I created an AI game where the player becomes the avatar and controls it with their hand motions.
Using Machine Learning and Splunk's software, I developed an application for the cybersecurity dept during my 2019 summer internship to blacklist DGA threats from bots and automate alert processes.
I'm a huge Avatar fan so I CADed & 3D printed Appa's Whistle, so one day I will be prepared to be the avatar.
Lasercutted my all-time favorite table top game, mahjong! I play this for HOURSS when I'm home with my family, but didn't have a mahjong set in college, so I made one
Carnegie Mellon’s motto is “My heart is in the work”, but really, my work should be from the heart.
Here's a short clip of my speech I gave to CMU about my thoughts on passion and work.
Co-President of Project Rwanda Service Organization
This summer, I traveled to Rwanda teaching STEM to teachers at local primary schools so the teachers can continue teaching the students in the school year.
During our time there, we reached out to Paul Kagame, the President of Rwanda, to discuss his vision of STEM and education for Rwanda to become a leading tech hub of Africa.
Through this discussion, we are now drafting new initiatives to align CMU’s resources to help magnify President Kagame’s vision.
I’m so excited to be President of this organization this year to really kickstart this program, as this initiative and service project is at its formative stages
Residential Adivsor (RA) for Freshman Dorms
Being an RA for first-year residents has been one of the most rewarding experiences.
I genuinely love CMU and my college experience and want my residents to have a support system and feel inspired to succeed and do something bigger than themselves.
I want my community to be better in every aspect, and if I can help my 30 residents contribute good to the community, that’s 30x more good that can make a bigger impact.
Throughout the year, I hosted two weekly events totalling to over 70 events for the community this year to foster cultural competency, a sense of belonging, and of course, free food.
