I am in the class of 2021 at Harvey Mudd College. I grew up in Katy, Texas but have also lived in some cool, faraway places like Okpo (South Korea), Virginia Water (England), and Claremont (California). I am a Mathematical Computational Biology major, which is at least the most complicated-sounding major at Mudd. If you don’t know what computational biology means, that’s fine because I’m still figuring it out too.

My favorite event is the cross country 5k (or 6k, depending on the race), but I also like the 1500m. If you are like me, and didn’t like track in high school, don’t worry. Collegiate track and field is much more fun. I especially enjoy the steeple chase (just watching it, not racing it).

In my free time, I like to play the piano, sing, learn different languages, and just spend time outdoors.
