Personal Statement

What motivates me to serve is empowering underrepresented students to be a part of the exciting field of computer science (CS). On campus, I lead the Computer Science Education Club, which broadens access to computer science by planning and executing events on campus and at local middle and high schools. This club is unique compared to other CS-focused clubs on campus because it has more female leaders and members than male, and a significant LGBTQ membership. I also founded and developed the curriculum for a program called Creative Coders to introduce middle school students to computer science through game development with UMBC mentors. Previously, I worked in curriculum development for Computer Science Matters in Maryland, where I was able to advocate for issues of diversity and accessibility in CS education on a national level.
