Biography: I study Electrical Engineering at Princeton University. I may stand only five feet tall, but I am driven to do big things for the world. I am a member of the Engineers Without Borders at Princeton and, this summer, our team worked hard to implement a rainwater catchment system in order to provide clean water to a small rural village in Kenya. While excelling academically, I am still an active member of my community – helping coordinate projects for the Princeton Engineering Education for Kids, an organization devoted to teaching young children about engineering early on in their education. In my spare time, I also help develop software for the Princeton Autonomous Vehicle Engineering Club.
After I graduate from Princeton, I hope to go to graduate school and eventually work for a major technology company as an Electrical or Software Engineer. I am ambitious and I want to devote my life to helping others globally. Eventually, I want to contribute to larger global issues by making technology more available to third world countries, by developing innovative and more cost effective ways to improve technology.
