Community Service: Sunrise Senior Living of Lynnwood Activities Assistant, 2017 to 2019. Over the summers, I volunteered at the assisted living and memory care departments at Sunrise Senior Living. I helped residents put together jigsaw puzzles, jog their memory, keep physically active, and so forth. In the memory care wing, I helped care managers keep track of residents, and helped keep the residents company as their memories faded away.

Significant School Project: Project $10K for TSA. This project started in 2016 and aimed to raise at least $10,000 each year to help pay for student competition material costs and trip fee scholarships for students in need. The project involved intensive fundraising through the design, creation, and distribution of laser cut items at market type events as well as reaching out to rotaries and chambers of commerce for financial assistance.

Educational Goals: I will pursue a bachelor’s of science in Computer Science with the Data Science option at the UW-Seattle Allen school, and plan to graduate in three years. Two years after that, I hope to obtain a master’s degree in business administration.

Career Goals: Data Analyst or Software Engineer for a startup company or Microsoft, Facebook, the City of Seattle.

Anything else we should know? I am a person of contradiction. I like conflicting subjects and surround myself with conflicting personalities. I seek to understand all of those around me, regardless of whether or not I agree with their values. I believe this is the key to solving our world’s many problems.

As for hobbies, in my free time, I run an Etsy shop where I design and manufacture custom twisty puzzles (Rubik’s Cubes) on my 3D printer. I also like writing and am a fountain pen enthusiast. I enjoy writing in my journal with neat cursive. In addition to that, I ski on weekends during the winter, and previously, served as a ski instructor for the Lyon’s ski school. During summers, I volunteer at Sunrise Senior Living of Lynnwood at the memory care wing, helping to keep residents company.
