What is something you are proud of in your life so far?

I am here. At Swarthmore. I made it here. 

What have been the most valuable Evans Scholars program experiences for you?

The most valuable Evans experience I've had are the late night talks that would run into the early morning during our stay in Philly. We would meet in my room after a long day, and we would just sit around and talk. That's where we began to really know each other.

I want to go deeper into engineering and computer science.
