Personal Biography

Why do you love UCI?
UCI has been with me through all of my successes and failures, and it’s home to countless memories. This school has provided me with numerous opportunities, introduced me to incredible people, and has taught me so much about myself and my career. For many reasons, it has become my home away from home. Although it may sound cheesy, I love UCI because it’s continued to mold me into someone I’m proud to be.

How can you be a successful Anteater?
The road to becoming a successful anteater is different for everyone. However, I believe that success is possible if you challenge yourself and take advantage of the countless resources UCI has to offer. You have to learn how to be comfortable doing things that might be uncomfortable, whether that’s joining a club, going to office hours, or chasing a job opportunity. Once we challenge ourselves, we can grow, mature, and achieve things we didn’t think were possible.

What is one fun fact about yourself?
I love weiner dogs and I’m excited to have one day so I can dress them up as a hot dog for Halloween.
