About Me

I'm Julie, and I was born and raised in Los Angeles. Though California is my home, I'm currently enjoying the east coast as a third-year Computer Science Engineering student at Princeton University, where I discovered the seemingly boundless possibilities of programming.

In addition to my coursework, I have been involved in the Computer Science community at Princeton as an Undergraduate Course Assistant for the COS department. During my sophomore summer, I created my first Android app through Facebook's FBU internship program. Next summer, I will be returning to Facebook as a 12-week Software Engineering Intern.

Despite my deep interests in STEM, I have never lost touch with my artistic side. If you catch me when I'm not coding, I'm probably painting!
