Community Involvement

COVID-19 Banner for GW School of Engineering

  • March 2020
  • Created a hero for the GW School of Engineering and Applied Science homepage to direct site

GW Innovation Center (GWIC)

  • Technology Fellow
  • September 2018 – Present
  • As a Technology Fellow, I collaborate on and manage various student-lead projects at the GW Innovation Center which integrate design, technology, ideation and social impact. I help run the GWIC, the first physical space on campus which provides students a creative environment dedicated to cross-disciplinary social innovation and entrepreneurial thinking. Through the GWIC, I have worked on projects including Virtual Jane, a VR educational app for the Jane Goodall Institute, the proposal for a Technology for Social Good Curriculum at GWU, and a booth design representing GW’s School of Engineering and Applied Science at SXSW EDU Conference 2020.

SXSW Booth

  • January 2020 – March 2020
  • Designed and created an interactive booth to advertise GW’s School of Engineering and Applied Science that was to be presented at SXSW EDU Conference 2020. Included the build of a 6 ft monument structure, interactive map activity and Instagram photo wall. Project not complete due to COVID-19 pandemic.

GW Minor Curriculum Program

  • August 2019 – May 2020
  • Initiated a design & technology for social good curriculum program at the George Washington University after discovering a lack of study options in this crossed discipline on campus. I help collect student data about their interest in the curriculum, as well as liaison between the student team and GW faculty to help take steps in bringing this program to GW

Women in Computer Science

  • Co-Chair (Dec 2019 – Pres), Secretary (May 2019 – Nov 2019), Freshman Rep (Sept 2018- May 2019)
  • September 2018 – Present
  • Immediately after arriving on campus, I sought out WiCS for a community where I could bond with other females in my field of study. Collectively, WiCS holds open study hours, facilitates a mentorship program, hosts panels and workshops, helps women gain new connections with companies for internships and jobs, and sends members to the Grace Hopper Conference each year. As an e-board member for 3 years, I’ve helped recruite new members and plan events through outreach to the WiCS and the larger GW community in order to take part in building a stronger community for women in computer science.

Looking Glass | GW’s First VR Club

  • Vice President, Co-Founder
  • August 2019 – Present
  • Looking Glass serves to expose members to the business, programming, and design aspects of a technology startup, particularly through Virtual Reality. I help lead weekly educational sessions on design techniques, UI/UX principles, marketing, and 3D modelling to club members.

Unity Game

  • Modeled and programmed interactive game in Unity that can be played in a VR headset or on a computer. Game has features including re-spawning, physics, point accumulation, checkpoints and more.
