Hello everyone and welcome to my blog! My name is Daniel and I’m a junior studying Biomedical Engineering with a minor in Computer Programming. I was born in Varna, Bulgaria, but for the past 11 years, I have called Long Beach, California my home. On campus, I am actively involved in Spark SC, the student entrepreneurial hub for innovation, and ASBME, the premier academic, professional, and social biomedical engineering organization.  I am also a Freshman Academy Coach, coordinating socials for both fall and spring freshmen. During my spare time, I love playing classical guitar and having jam sessions with my talented friends! You can also find me at the Lyon Center playing in competitive games of pick-up basketball. This summer, I studied abroad in Rome, Italy through the Viterbi Overseas Program. Read on to find out more about my #ViterbiLife!



My Favorite Places in LA

Involvements

USC’s hub for student-driven entrepreneurship that connects makers across diverse communities through a culture of innovation. As a member of Spark, I have had the opportunity of leading the biannual Startup Career Fair that connects the top startups in the LA area to our immensely talented student body with the goal of providing opportunities for summer internships, jobs, and networking.
ASBME is a student-run undergraduate and graduate biomedical engineering organization at USC that serves the engineering student body through academic, social, and corporate events. As the social chair, I have organized monthly social events such as hikes and beach trips to foster a community of friendship between fellow BME students.
Coaches lead a class to help freshmen learn about the importance of engineering, the ethical implications of engineering decisions, and understand how engineers affect society, technology, history and politics. We organize weekly presentations and out of class activities that transition freshmen engineers into life as Viterbi students.

My Major at USC: Biomedical Engineering


My Favorite Classes
My final project consisted of building a full-functioning app that allowed users to search for a doctor by their specialization, location, age, gender, and rating.
Professor Redekopp is, in my opinion, one of the best professors within Viterbi. This class gives you the opportunity to understand the basics of electrical systems and how to interface software and hardware.

My Tips for You

Application Essays

Write about what you are passionate about. Channel your creativity, but don't force it. Have a lot of people proof-read your drafts and give you feedback on your sentence structure, content, and overall flow. Ultimately, the style and ideas behind the essay are entirely up to you.

Application Extracurriculars

Paint a detailed and accurate picture of yourself. Be honest about the time you've invested into each activity and emphasize your leadership roles as well as the impact you've had during your four years in high school. The activities you list should demonstrate a passion and determination that you intend to carry over into your college career.

My Favorite Shows

  • Action, fantasy, adventure. The creative detail of the world George R.R. Martin has created is what has elevated this franchise to the next level and made it into the phenom that it is today.

     

  • Ten seasons of genuine laughs and emotion. I love to watch reruns whenever they come on. The show is a classic and has some of my favorite acting and personalities.
