Hey there!  I'm a software developer who builds products that improve one's life convenience! I study Cognitive Science, Computer Science and Statistics at the University of Toronto.

I'm a tech unicorn! I've held design roles, web dev roles and worked on data science projects.

I've been to 12 hackathons and won 4 of them! 

In the future, I want to try out data science or software developer roles.

First Collab on Polywork

Connected with a fellow cognitive science major interested in the tech industry and accessibility. I shared how I approached networking and skillbuilding as an introvert from a nontraditional background. We talked about doing things the way that is healthy for you vs forcing yourself to do what others proclaim as the only "right" way.

Founded a student organization
Founded a new student organization at the University of Toronto, St.George - UofT Students Digital Society Collective.

I noticed the lack of conversation around the societal impacts of technology and ethical technology. So I started a club to facilitate open discussions on societal impacts of technology at UofT.

I was at Freetail Hackers Change-a-thon last weekend and tried my hand at product ideation, research and idea proposals!

Over the 12 hours, Tri Pham and I looked into ethical social media, researched existing redesigns and came up with our own ethical Instagram redesign - MiCommunity. All our hard work paid off and we won in the Best Ideation Change category!

Check out our demo and proposal - !
