What were your interests in high school?
Back in high school I spent a lot of time drawing and painting. I also enjoyed being a part of a Chinese cultural club that involved several other local high schools.
What is your favorite activity outside of the classroom?
I still enjoy painting and drawing, but I also love exploring Boston and Cambridge.
Why did you decide to major in course 22?
Originally I thought I wanted to be course 10 when I first came to MIT, but after participating in an NSE program before orientation I realized that I didn’t love chemistry anywhere near as much as I love nuclear science. There is still so much that can be learned about nuclear energy, medicine, and technology and I wanted to be a part of that field.
What is you most memorable experience so far as a course 22 student?
Over the course of my freshman year and following summer I went through the training program at the MIT reactor and became a student operator. Some days I still can’t believe that I get to have a job that is so closely related to my schoolwork.
What would you like to do after graduating?
I&rsqm still not entirely sure what I want to do after graduation. Maybe a nuclear startup? A research lab?
