Major: BS Computer Science
Hometown: Palo Alto, California
I chose this major because... I love working with computers and I know that this degree can allow me to pursue my career at anywhere from non-profits to high-tech companies.
Favorite Course(s): CS164, an introductory course lots of CCI students take their freshman fall. Between Dr. Stuart’s teaching, the freedom in assignments, and getting to meet other freshman really helped me start my first year off right.
Clubs/Extracurricular Activities: Drexel Theater, Hillel, D&D
Co-ops I've done:
- Machine Learning Intern at Aktana Inc.
Favorite thing/place at Drexel: The Black Box Theater.
When I'm not at Drexel, I'm... at home or Hillel baking.
When you are in Philadelphia, I think you should... make sure to hit both Sabrina’s and Schmear It – my two favorite breakfast places in University City.
Advice to new/incoming CCI students: Do not be afraid to explore outside of CCI, Drexel is a diverse community with countless clubs and extracurriculars. Try out as many of these opportunities as you can, you never know where you might find new friends or passions.
What is your dream job? Software architect or project manager at a high tech start up
Favorite Animated Character: Jack Skellington
I am originally from California but have fallen in love with Philadelphia over my first year at Drexel. I spent my Freshman summer doing research through the STAR
program, and as a sophomore will be going on my first coop. I chose Drexel because of the opportunities in computer science coop and the theater.
