Aspiring full-stack software engineer

Hi, I am a penultimate Computer Science undergraduate and aspiring full-stack developer passionate about solving meaningful problems.

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

I believe social growth is just as important as academic development. As a CS1010: Programming Methodology tutor, I conducted weekly 2-hour tutorial sessions for 14 students. As the current Deputy Head of Technology of NUS's Google Developer Student Club, I oversee the execution of technical events organised by the club.

In my free time, I read, practice Vinyasa yoga and train for endurance running.

Open for summer 2020 internship opportunities

I am looking for an internship from 11 May to 31 August 2020 in which I would get to work on meaningful problems in a collaborative environment. During this internship, I hope to receive guidance from mentors who would challenge me to grow.
