Aspiring full-stack software engineer

Hi, I am a Computer Science undergraduate and aspiring full-stack developer passionate about solving meaningful problems. This summer, I am doing a Software Engineer internship at Open Government Products, and taking part in the Google Cloud Student Sprint Program.

I believe social growth is just as important as academic development. As a tutor for CS1010: Programming Methodology, I conducted weekly tutorials for 14 students independently. As the Deputy Head of Technology at Developer Student Club NUS, I co-organised and emceed for the first-ever Hack For Good hackathon.

I am also an IMDA scholar (bond-free) who has received numerous academic and leadership awards. I was awarded the Colours Award for my contributions to the recreational sports scene as the President of the NUS Skating Club.

In my free time, I run, read and learn new things. The latest online course I completed is the Udemy course: Node with React: Fullstack Web Development.
