Hi there! I’m not quite sure how you found me, but welcome to my blog! Here I publish little tidbits of introspection, life, hobbies, bursts of creativity, spurts of ideas, stories, and other things I find meaningful.

For a little bit about me (which may be updated every now and then), I am a rising second year at UC Berkeley double majoring in Computer Science and Statistics with a minor in Politics, Philosophy & Law. (Class of ’27, Go Bears!) Were you to ask me for a TLDR, I’d probably say I’m a CS major who does my best to follow these values and touch grass ;).

I have a love for writing, music, running (I compete on Berkeley’s triathlon team!), CS (duh), computational linguistic puzzles, meeting new people, and learning new things. You can often find me sticking my head in the fridge for Greek yogurt, singing Disney & musical theatre songs, jogging in the middle of nowhere (believe me, I’ve found myself in the weirdest of places), and scribbling notes on post-its splattered across my desk.

If you’re here to learn about my credentials and why you should read my writing, perhaps I can offer a little bit of credibility: I was a writer for the Berkeley Political Review, the Editor-In-Chief of my high school newspaper, and an alumna of the Kenyon Review Young Writers Workshop and Juniper Institute for Young Writers. My work has been recognized by the Scholastic Art and Writing Awards, the Journalism Education Association of NorCal, & National History Day CA, and I’ve gotten a few runner-ups and honorable mentions from the New York Times contests. But I’d say the most convincing credential? I’m a total writing-fanatic.

I believe in the power of words. These tiny little building blocks of 字,palabras — it’s a beautiful and fascinating art. Just a few hundred of them have the power to change people’s minds. It’s mind blowing!

By reading my writing, I hope you get a little bit more insight into your day. Thank you for visiting and accompanying me on my writing journey.

Cheers! And Happy Reading!


To browse all my stories, start here! If you’d like to read some of my favorites, I’ve listed them below. Otherwise, feel free to look through my lists (categorized stories) or my homepage for stories ordered chronologically by date published. (Fun Fact: This blog was started back when I was a high school sophomore, so there’s quite a few stories!)
