I am a rising junior at the University of Washington studying Human Centered Design and Engineering, and I identify as an interidisciplinary storyteller with a passion for social impact. My goal is to bridge the gap – between scientists and the general public, between writers and their audience, and between current students and the mentors through compelling writing.
I believe inclusion, vulnerability, and a little bit of humor are the ingredients to craft compelling narratives, which is why you can usually find me tutoring, transcribing interviews, and telling stories, all while fueling up with ½ hazelnut, ½ vanilla lattes. I believe that all good writers learn by listening to others, which is why I spend my time empowering underrepresented voices through my work as a writing tutor and journalist, with particular focus on people of color and underrepresented minorities in STEM. My favorite stories focus on celebrating South Asian culture, education programs that support students from diverse backgrounds, and cutting-edge research in neural engineering.
Long-term, I hope to work as a UX writer, which is the perfect place to work collaboratively to create inclusive products.
