When I first came to Pomona, I thought I wanted to study PPE. Later in my college, I realized that the track wasn't really for me and ended up majoring in Computer Science because I found it more fun and challenging. Besides indulging/torturing myself in CS labs, I spent most of my time managing Claremont Chinese Theatre Group, an entirely student-run club that produces one classic play per semester. In the summers, I worked with three start-ups, specialized in travel, education and finance respectively. 

I’m currently working for Microsoft on Data Warehouse and please let me know if you are interested in the industry or anything else!

Advice to students: whatever you study or do, it will eventually become useful to you as long as you found it interesting. Enjoy your time and explore boldly beyond the classroom.
