Who I Am  

A Little About Me

I was born and raised in Cupertino, CA (fun fact: Cupertino is the headquarters of Apple, so if you have an iPhone or Mac computer, it is set as the default for the clock and weather app). I currently go to California State University, Fullerton, but have since moved back to Cupertino due to the pandemic. I currently work for the Associated Students, Inc. at CSUF as a Programming Coordinator, in which we put on events for over 40,000 students. I am a fourth year Business Administration major with a concentration in Marketing and Information Systems, currently looking for an internship or part time job in digital/social media marketing or marketing analytics. In my free time, I operate a very small Etsy shop in which I sell handmade floral Disney ears which combines two of my passions: Disney and crafting. I am also very passionate about makeup and the beauty industry.
