I am an ambitious and driven computer science student at Washington and Lee University with a passion for software engineering and creating innovative solutions. As the recipient of a full scholarship, I have been able to fully immerse myself in W&L's rigorous academic environment and excel, making the President's List each year. I bring a global perspective shaped by my experiences studying on a full scholarship at Pearson College UWC in Canada, where I broadened my worldview and strengthened my intercultural communication abilities. Through my education and experiences, I have developed strong technical skills in programming languages like Python, Java, and JavaScript, along with interest and developing knowledge in AI/machine learning and full-stack development. My background in IT support and leading a Computer Science club have honed my problem-solving skills and drive to build innovative products. With my strong technical abilities, leadership experience, and passion for developing creative solutions, I am excited to apply my diverse skills and experiences to make meaningful contributions as a software engineer.
