my story β€”

Business. Cognitive Science. Information Systems.

I've switched between three different majors during my three semesters at Carnegie Mellon University, hoping to find the right balance between my interests at the intersection of design, technology, and business. While a business major, I participated in various business case competitions with my friends. I noticed that I always gravitated toward a designer role, and took it on myself to learn Figma to create mock-ups and slide decks for our presentations. Since then, I haven't stopped learning.

I've finally found my place at CMU studying Information Systems and Human-Computer Interaction, where I draw from my interests to collaborate in various team-based projects. I aspire to be a designer to combine my lifelong art training (taking art lessons from my mom), business knowledge, and technological background to craft interactive and ethical experiences for interconnectivity and learning. I'm always open to opportunities to practice my craft and explore digital mediums! I love meeting new people and vetting crazy ideas, whether that be through hackathons, side gigs, or ADPList chats.

In addition to my studies I enjoy reading non-fiction and biographies from tech figures and activistsβ€” I enjoy asking the whys, questioning the status quo, and thinking about ways to solve endless trivial day-to-day struggles through design. I'm always open to book suggestions, and would love to chat about any books we've cross-read, check out my bookshelf here!

Thank you for visiting my portfolio and viewing my growing collection of digital pieces. Stay tuned for more 🌱 πŸ˜‰
