Personal Biography

Why do you love UCI?
The people care, which in turn made me care. Coming out of High School my school was not exactly known for having school spirit, and UCI it seemed would not be much different. Fortunately I was wrong, while there might not be a crowd gathering to watch our basketball team, we gather to help others and make sure we all feel welcome. The people here care so much about individual students and in turn it made me want to get involved and help others feel just as welcome as I have.

How can you be a successful Anteater?
Plan ahead, then follow through with that plan. It can be very easy to make a schedule but the hard part is following through with the things you said you will. It will make you a dependable and reliable person, and people are always looking for dependability and reliability in others. Though it can seem like a lot of responsibility, if you plan accordingly, it will make things so much more fluid.

What is one fun fact about yourself?
I’m really into photography and photo-art and like experimenting with different styles, themes, and techniques.
