I hope all has been going well on the other side of the pond (am I still allowed to say that even though I am not in Britain? I’m going to say it anyways).

Last October, I attended the Grace Hopper Celebration of Women in Computing in Houston, Texas. It was such a fun opportunity. I networked with representatives from some of the world’s top tech companies, attended seminars, and, best of all, met other girls in engineering.

Sometimes, I plan my school days around food. For example… “Okay, so, after I grab my warm breakfast from RTH Café, I’ll go to SAL for office hours until I finish the second homework question. Then, I’ll skip over to Campus Center and have a pizza for lunch. Maybe I will get ice cream with a friend when classes are …

The school I am attending for this semester is called the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology, abbreviated to HKUST, more commonly just called UST. If you think that gets confusing with telling people I go to USC, you’re right. But despite the rhyming acronyms, I’ve definitely found some significant differences between the two schools. Size: UST has just …

My grandma always says, “If you don’t got your health, you don’t got nothin’.” With midterms, music festivals, and the end of the spring upon us, life can get really busy, really quickly. All of the end of the year work, final projects, and group assignments feel like they’re piling up. During this stressful time, it’s incredibly important to make …

Sorry for the long title, but I had a pretty transformative experience last week I wanted to write about because it literally just confirmed why I love Viterbi, and why every woman should go here.

DAMN. That’s what I’m listening to right now. The Kendrick Lamar album? Haven’t heard of it? It’s new. And incredible. And it’s probably the third new album I’ve listed to in the last few days.

Hey everyone, Last week was crazy busy: lots of assignments, a couple midterms, and helping out with ExploreSC.

On Tuesdays and Thursdays, I wake up to go to none other than my weight training class! It”s a two-unit course that I get to take, in the PE department, even as an engineer. Honestly, one of the reasons I decided to take it was to force myself to work out, at least twice a week. Just five weeks in, …
