Skating at Cornell

I took figure skating lessons in elementary school. I remember being okay at it but loving every single second, and wanting to learn everything.

A Summer Summary ’16: What I Learned

One of the great things about my summer was that I got about exactly what I asked for. I wanted to do backend. I needed to get that experience, and I wanted to see if I liked it. Sometimes, though, you also get what you’re needed for. I was needed for full-stack development. I made a dashboard […]
