New graduate, Class of COVID-19
Hi, I’m Mary and welcome to my blog! I’m 22, born and raised in the San Francisco Bay Area, and I recently just graduated from UC Santa Cruz in March 2020 with degrees in Computer Science and Economics. My time during college was quite the adventure – I discovered eye-opening truths, unlocked new perspectives, and built life-long friendships. Although COVID-19 has kept me hidden from the world, I am excited to begin a new journey where I can help bring change to the world and directly impact those around me with the skills and experience I have learned throughout college.
Ever since I was a little girl, I have always been fascinated by the magic that technology brings to life. From customizing my Tumblr blog during my angsty teenage years to developing a financial markets platform that tests for exploits caused by high frequency trading, I have become passionate about the power of technology to solve problems in our society.
When I’m not coding away to the soulful tunes of R&B, I’m most likely
- choreographing dances
- baking / cooking
- updating this blog
- tending to my 8 different Instagram accounts
- playing with other people’s pets
