Who I Am  

A Little About Me

I was born and raised in the Bay Area and appreciate the perks of living in a diverse city with abundant opportunities. I am an incoming sophomore at UC Davis majoring in Statistics, and intending to add a Communication major and Professional Writing minor. While I'm early in my academic journey, I hope to find a path that combines my three main strengths: analyzing, interacting, and expressing my creativity.

Interesting Factoid

Even before I learned how to read, I took acting classes for two years and auditioned for a Welches commercial to earn admittance into the acting program. Unfortunately, my acting career never took off.

Clubs and Communities

Wildcat Writers Club

President

After three years of being an active member of the Wildcat Writers Club, I took over as president in my senior year of high school. Every week, I constructed lesson plans to teach at creative writing workshops at neighboring elementary and middle schools. At the end of the year, I compiled my workshop students' original works into an anthology as a keepsake. In addition, I hosted a Twitter Contest open to all students at my high school and awarded the top three entries with prizes.

Saint Ignatius TV (SITV)

News Anchor, Montage Editor, and Videographer

With the help of a teleprompter and good lighting, I delivered announcements for my high school's news channel. In addition, I helped turn schoolwide announcements into montages by looking over scripts prior to filming and editing the footage.
