LeadershipI am also the President of UCSD Graduate Women in Computing (GradWIC) which is a graduate student organization that primarily focuses on community building and outreach. I organize and lead mentorship programs, professional development workshops, movie nights, beach bonfires, graduate school application workshops, and manage scholarships for students to attend Grace Hopper and ACM Richard Tapia Celebration of Diversity in Computing. I strive to create an innovative, informative, and inclusive environment; focusing primarily on those who identify as women and underrepresented minorities in computing fields.
I am the CSE Representative to Graduate and Professional Students Association (GPSA), operating as a point of contact and organizer for broader CSE community events.
I am currently a mentor in three UCSD-based mentorship programs:
