BARNARD COLLEGE, COLUMBIA UNIVERSITY '19 / COMPUTER SCIENCE + HISTORY

Just a young, relentless woman dabbling around in the tech scene.

I’ve learned that there are two main reasons why I am attracted to the tech space: its challenge and intersectionality. Harnessing the power to build without restraint is empowering, and the room to grow is even more exciting.

As Corporate Chair for the Columbia Women in Computer Science Organization , I’m a strong advocate for diversity in the tech field for women and minorities. Earlier in April, I led efforts to organize DivHacks, Columbia University’s first ever diversity hackathon. Check out our website here.

And a blog post I wrote about it here.

Also, check out my latest Medium article on 'Understanding the Gender Deficiency in CS,' here.

Check back soon for more updates- many upcoming side projects coming up that I am excited to share 🌈
