Personal Biography

Why do you love UCI?
The reason I love UCI is that it truly feels like a second home with the environment and the people who are around me. Whether it be my peers in academics, extracurricular activities, or work, everyone shares similar goals of growing as people, which leads to everyone wanting to support each other through their individual journeys. There are many people who have impacted me during my time here, whether it was through a simple smile or the wave they gave me when walking on campus or spending time with my lifelong friends that I have been able to meet here.

How can you be a successful Anteater?
The best way to be a successful anteater is through managing time and stress efficiently. Many students are given the daunting task of having to balance numerous involvements on top of academics, and that challenge can be difficult to bear with. It is important to maintain a proper balance by not taking on too much during one period of time as well as not being afraid to ask for help. There are many resources on campus that can help address issues of both academic and non-academic nature and they are available for students when the support is needed.

What is one fun fact about yourself?
I like to sing, and I am in an a cappella group at UCI.
