Majors: Computer Science and Psychology
Graduation Year: 2026

I was born in the Philippines and lived there until I was 9, then moved to New York. In my free time, I love playing video games with friends (Rocket League is what I've been playing most frequently lately), watching shows, bullet journaling, and making art with polymer clay or painting. I'm thrilled to be part of Code+ this summer and am excited to grow as a programmer! One area of technology that I'm excited about and am considering career-wise is mental health technology, such as VR for exposure therapy, which involves desensitizing those who suffer from phobias, anxiety disorders, and PTSD to their stressors through repeated exposure. With VR, simulating stressors like animal phobias or triggers related to PTSD is much more feasible than in traditional therapy, allowing more people to recover!
