Academic Accolades

In high school, my unweighted GPA was a 4.0 (I was valedictorian of my class). My weighted GPA was a 4.9. At UC San Diego, I am a rising sophomore, and my GPA is currently 3.973. I have earned Provost Honors every quarter I have studied at UC San Diego. I was an AP Scholar with Distinction. I earned the following scores on the AP exams I have taken: AP Calculus AB=5, AP Chemistry=4, AP Biology=4, AP Physics 1=4, AP Physics 2=4, AP English Language=4. Additionally, I earned a perfect 800 on the math portion of the SAT exam. I was the secretary of Science National Honor Society (2018-2019). My job was to organize community service events. I also served as the publicity manager (2017-2018) and treasurer (2018-2019) of a local music volunteering organization run by students. I helped fundraise for the organization. For two quarters, I have been awarded a Triton Research and Experiential Learning Scholars (TRELS) Award for my psychology research project centered around children's understanding of discrimination. Now, I work in an ophthalmology lab that students degradation of the eye and its relation to glaucoma.

Tutoring Experience

From 2016-2019, I taught piano performance. I worked mostly with elementary schools students, helping them develop basic technique and learn how to read music. From 2017-2018, I tutored a high school sophomore in Algebra 2. I focused on teaching her how to approach different problems, rather than just memorizing formulas. I also helped her learn test-taking skills. From 2018-2019, I tutored an elementary school student in math and English. We focused on arithmetic and English grammar. As a part of National Honor Society and Mu Alpha Theta (a math honor society), I helped Algebra 2 and Pre-Calculus teachers grade quizzes and exams and tutor students during lunch time help sessions. I have been an Instructional Assistant for genetics, an upper-division biology class for 4 terms.

Philanthropy / Volunteering Experience

I volunteered for about a year at Providence Little Company of Mary Medical Center San Pedro. I was a high school volunteer working in the Labor and Delivery department. I was responsible for assisting doctors and nurses, escorting patients, greeting patients, making deliveries, organizing and restocking rooms, and changing beds. I also volunteered at Harbor UCLA Medical Center for about a year. I worked in a variety of departments, including urgent care, the emergency room, and the cast room. I got the opportunity to greet and escort patients, help medical professionals in any way I could, and even learn how to make different types of casts! I have also gotten the amazing opportunity to volunteer as the PurpleStride Event Experience Chair for LA Affiliate of the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network (PanCAN). I organized fundraisers at local restaurants and helped gather donors for PurpleStride, the largest fundraising event PanCAN hosts. I have also volunteered at the San Diego Rescue Mission, a homeless shelter. Before COVID-19, I was volunteering mainly in the women and children portion of the shelter serving food. I have experience working with children with autism. For two years, I worked at summer program for children with special needs. Majority of the children had autism, and I helped them develop both social and motor skills. Additionally, before COVID-19 hit, I was working with autistic children at Rady Children's Hospital's autism discovery institute. There, I helped children between the ages of 18 months and 5 years develop communication skills and understanding their feelings. I now serve as a Behavior Technician, providing ABA therapy to children on the autism spectrum to help them develop motor and social skills.
