Who are you?
I am a junior Computer Science major at UCR. I am interested in artificial intelligence, graphics and parallel computing. I am a Vietnamese Eagle Scout. I like to spend my time either sleeping or watching random videos on the internet (a turtle eating a tomato). I love food in terms of cooking and eating.
What got you interested in computer science?
I got interested in computer science when I took a course in high school and it was one of the few classes where we made our own unique projects.
What made you want to be an ACM mentor?
I wanted to be an ACM mentor since I did not have one and I feel a mentor can be a good resource for their mentee.
What's the best advice you have received?
“You tend to be more productive when working with others.” because I don’t want to let others down, as opposed to personal work.
Short term: I am looking for an internship for this upcoming summer. Long term: I am still unsure of what industry or jobs I want to pursue.
