Biography

Hometown: Indianapolis

High school: Providence Cristo Rey

Career goal: Work in cybersecurity

About: I was born and raised in Indianapolis and am a sophomore at IUPUI, majoring in Informatics with a specialization in network and Information security.

I picked SoIC because I really enjoyed the iDEW program I took when I was in high school. I learned a lot about technology and coding, and that’s when my interest in tech started to grow.

I chose to be an SoIC ambassador because I wanted to help others transition from high school to college or transferring college students. I was a student ambassador at my high school and I want to continue helping others in my college years.
