Who I Am  

A Little About Me

I'm a current 2nd-year undergraduate majoring in biomedical engineering and minoring in health care studies at USC. I’m interested in learning about how engineering and health can intersect into the consulting industry. Beyond academics, I enjoy volunteering in my community and exploring new music. Additionally, my passions include painting and drawing, as well as connecting with new people. With my broad interests, in the future, I'm hoping to become a medical device engineer, physician, or consultant!

Interesting Factoid

I was born with a spinal cord birth defect and underwent surgery at 6 months old.
