I grow iteratively
Nothing is permanent. Everything is subject to change. Being is always becoming.
I wholeheartedly embrace struggle as a necessity for improvement, and I am perpetually in search of new opportunities that will stimulate growth. I think that the surest means to improvement, whether for an individual or collective, is to test the waters with an idea and then look to the ripples. So far I have found a good metric in the degree to which I can communicate with my team mates and stakeholders. Applying this philosophy to my roles as a leader, thinker, communicator, student, educator, and innovator gives me the greatest fulfillment. The story of one's self is the story of ourselves.
For me, teaching and learning are symbiotic
- I served as a teaching assistant and mentor for the computer science courses at Pomona College, where I strive to share with my peers the habits and mentalities I've found most helpful.
- I worked on a physics education workspace application to help introductory level physics students hone their problem-solving processes.
- I combined the experience I had gained as a Computer Science TA with some of the techniques I implemented as a researcher working on the Physics Education Workspace to teach a Chromebook-based digital literacy curriculum to homeless women and other community members at my hometown library.
- I also ran the Claremont Philosophers, a club aimed at making philosophy more accessible so that more people might benefit from its applications to everyday life.
