About: I am from Indianapolis, Indiana, and attended Providence Cristo Rey High School. During my sophomore year of high school, I discovered my passion for technology. I was one team member of ladies that helped build a trivia app game and won first place at a competition.

I soon wanted to gain experience in what a software development career entails. I interned at Salesforce for my last two years of high school. The LiFT scholarship program helped me find a voice for my major here at the School of Informatics and Computing (SOIC) supporting the need for diversity in technology careers.

I chose to be a SOIC ambassador because I want to help other people like me find their interests and sense of belonging at the school, but also in the tech careers. I am an Informatics major, minoring in 3D Animation, and planning to specialize in Human-Computer Interaction (HCI). My career goal is to design prosthetics!
