Academic Status: Masters student

Biography:

I am a first year computer science master’s student and a GEM fellow at the University of Michigan. Upon the completion of graduate school I aspire to have a career as a software engineer. I enjoy working with inner city youth as I have facilitated STEM summer camps and taught as a substitute teacher for grades K-12. My hobbies include cooking, binge watching tv shows, and gardening.

Motivation:

SRP-HPC provides avenues for networking and community building, which I have found to be beneficial thus far. I enjoyed the interactive webinar on Normalizing Inclusion. The webinar allowed for group and partner participation which allowed me to break out of my shell and engage with other interns and mentors. Going forward, I am interested in the community building event and opportunities for career exploration.
