What do I do as a Program Assistant?
I assist the HMC CS Department with various projects that faculty do, manage Grutor hiring, and help build student community within the CS Department. I've been with the department about a year and I've found myself helping with faculty searches, planning events, and assisting with the Summer of CS program. Meanwhile, in the background I'm doing admin things necessary for the department such as helping facilitate student awards and managing conference travel.
Contribute to diverse and equitable workplaces to transform higher education to be inclusive.
I have an interest in working in academic affairs, counseling, and working in an administrative capacity. I enjoy helping and assisting others to realize their full potential and see myself working with students in small group settings or one-on-one.
I like keyboards so much that I have a dedicated section to them.
I do enjoy video games and am very good with the Monster Hunter series.
I enjoy reading fantasy, sci-fi, and fiction novels. Sometimes I have the itch to read non-fiction books about psychology, science, politics, and education. Check out the "Reading" section on books related to higher education.
I might be addicted to boba drinks, but I try to balance it out by ordering with less sugar and boba as well as drinking plenty of water. I am always down to make boba runs, and/or within reason, coordinate boba catering for the CS Department.
