About Me

I am a self-motivated and sincere college first-year student majoring in Electrical & Computer Engineering and Robotics at Carnegie Mellon University with experience in programming, networking, biology and graphic design. I have built strong leadership skills during my years on my high school's student government, as well as serving as president of the student body.

In recent years I have had the opportunity to intern at various tech startups and also at a biological research lab. These experiences have allowed me to learn more about these fields through working.
