Hello! I'm currently a senior studying computer science in the College of Arts and Science. While I spend most of my time on campus, I'm also interning at Justworks as a software engineer. Before transferring to NYU, I went to school in Boston, and I lived in Hilo, Hawaii. With that said, I like traveling to attend hackathons, drinking craft beer in the NYC scene, and empowering other women and people in the tech community.

I am a junior at NYU studying Computer Science. As a college athlete and Computer Science major, I am interested in entrepreneurial opportunities that combine nutrition and tech. Outside of school, I love reading non-fiction and exploring restaurants themed around the latest diet fads in the city. Please feel free to reach if you want to learn about women in tech, latest workout/diet trends in the city or just to grab coffee!

Hey! I am a senior majoring in Computer Science and minoring in Web Programming and Applications. I was a TA for Girls Who Code Summer Immersion Program 2016. It was very fulfilling to see the students transform from people who were daunted by code to people who hacked something meaningful to them. I also interned at Wells Fargo, where I helped develop applications that streamline the trading process. In my free time I love to hang out with friends and explore the city.

Hello! I’m a senior majoring in Computer Science and minoring in Web Programming and Applications. I’m currently interning at Justworks as a software engineer. In my free time I enjoy taking/editing pictures, watching pointless youtube videos and playing/listening to music. I was in studying Computer Science at NYU Paris this past semester which was an amazing experience!!

I am studying Human Computer Interaction in Gallatin, which is really a combination of Computer Science, Linguistics, and Design courses. I am fascinated by the ways humans communicate with both each other and technology. During the year, I have been interning at venture-backed slack-bot as a Growth and Product intern and will be joining them this summer on the engineering team! I love all things startups, networking (let's get coffee and talk!), and sweet potatoes!
