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.
Even though I knew there are many people in the world without access to food, it never struck me that there could be such a large population of those people in the DC area.
This summer, I achieved something that I never thought that I could do; I finished my first 5K.
This is a story about what I did on a typical day while completing my internship at Boston Children’s Hospital this past summer. I hope that you find it interesting!
I was never really interested in biology or research until my freshman year biology class with Mrs. Fields. It was then that everything changed.
It’s not very often that someone can have the opportunity to research and study their medical condition, but when it does you can be sure that they will stop at nothing, to find a cure.
I believe that artificial intelligence is the next great frontier of technological advancement. Its cognitive abilities are able to analyze vast amounts of data and present us with insights that we would never have been able to discover on our own.
Robotics is the point at which software and hardware meet. This combination of disciplines allows for devices to be created that can have a substantial impact on individuals and our society as a whole.
I live for the startup. The fast-paced, focused environment. The long nights and breakless weeks. The excitement in the office, the feeling that the ideas discussed here are going to change the world.
