About Me

Let's get in touch!


Add me on LinkedIn!


Hey there! I'm Ell, a fourth-year Informatics student at University of California, Irvine. Throughout my time at college, I have discovered a passion for software engineering, UX design and research, and the intersections of technology and social justice. I would love to enrich my knowledge in these fields by engaging with professionals in the field and learning through hands-on experience with software engineering projects.

My interests outside of technology include art, crocheting, writing, environmentalism, and social justice, especially the topics of class and race theory and LGBTQ+ rights.  An important career goal of mine is to contribute my efforts to software development projects that will benefit marginalized communities, whether that is in the role of developer, researcher, or designer.  I know that I can take on any of these roles because I have had experience in my courses performing each role and I am hard-working, pragmatic, creative, detail-oriented, and passionate.

Currently, I'm working as a Computer Science Instructor at Juni Learning. The most valuable things I have gained during my time teaching my students are communication skills, adaptability, patience, and a deeper appreciation for programming languages .I have found that I love to work with both technology and people, and discovered a passion for helping and encouraging children to explore careers in STEM, especially girls and children of color who are underrepresented in the field of computer science.
