Welcome to my website!
I am a first-year physics major at UCSB. I plan on changing majors to Mechanical Engineeering in my sophomore year and studying abroad in France in my junior year. In my spare time, I play water polo for the UCSB Club water polo team and I hang out on the beach with my friends.
I attended Willow Glen High School in San Jose, California. I graduated with a 4.4 GPA and strong level of preparedness for a higher education. I started my college career this past September at UCSB where I am currently a physics major.
Here are descriptions of each job I have worked and my upcoming internship as well as the time period I worked at each job.
Here are some of my current pastimes and skills and hopefully my future ones.
I speak, write, and read French at an intermediate level. I am currently working to become 100% fluent so that I can be more prepared for when I travel to Europe in the future.
I play water polo for the UCSB Men's Club team and I love everything about it.
I am currently taking an online class about the programming languages: C and Python. However, I am still a beginner at coding.
While at UCSB, I started surfing and used to go weekly with my friends. Once quarantine ends, I intend to improve on my surfing abilities and hopefully buy my own board.
I have been playing the trumpet for the past 10 years of my life and now use it as a pastime or a stress reliever. I love to play jazz and pop songs, and with my dad and brother.
I lifeguarded and taught swim lessons throughout all of high school. I am CPR/First Aid certified and a fairly decent swim instructor.
I am currently trying to change my major to Mecahnical Engineering in my sophomore year so that I can do a 5-year B.S. and M.S. program at UCSB.
I plan to study abroad my junior year first semester in either France or Germany. To prepare for this I am learning the customs and will start learning basic German in case I decide to study in Germany.
For my free electives I will be taking Economics so that I can learn how to responsibly handle money, invest, and own assets in a financially intelligent way.
A fairly unimportant project on my summer to-do list is to build a die projectile launcher to improve my beer die skills. Although it has no important purpose, I will be applying physics and woodworking knowledge to build it.
My club team and I are trying to make the cut for nationals (probably 2021 Nationals). This will require us to raise a lot of money and to improve our fundamental skills. This past season we were one seed away from making the cut.
