Tell us about your Duke experience:

I am a first year student at Duke University, and I am currently planning to major in computer science and math. I was born in Bangkok, Thailand, grew up in the Atlanta suburbs, and now I’m happy to call Durham, North Carolina home.

I am super passionate about CS education. In high school, one of my most memorable experiences was teaching computer science to girls at a local middle school. At Duke, I’ve had the opportunity to continue these efforts in a program called CS Sidekicks, where we work with Durham Public Schools students. Around campus, I am also involved with DAML, a machine learning group, DTech, an organization for women in computer science, as well as Baldwin Scholars, a women’s leadership program.

The A.B. program has been a blast. First off, being able to attend Duke with a full-ride scholarship is an immense privilege and opportunity. I’m especially looking forward to the funded experiences, such as studying abroad at Oxford with the rest of my A.B. cohort! I have also met many brilliant friends and mentors within the A.B. community; being connected with people doing some of the most interesting things at Duke is an incredible resource.

In my free time, I love singing, songwriting, and playing guitar (I’m actually taking a guitar class here!) I’ve really enjoyed being able to explore all my passions, academic or not, here at Duke.
