About Me

Education

Georgia Institute of Technology

Bachelor of Science: Literature, Media, and Communication

I am currently a fifth-year undergraduate student pursuing a degree in literature, media, and communication and concentrating in the fields of communication, science, and technology. I plan to graduate in May 2022.

Throughout my time at Georgia Tech, I have earned Faculty Honors (4.0 GPA) for 5 consecutive semesters, and I have interned twice in both technical writing and engineering positions. Most recently, I was named a Face of Inclusive Excellence for my work in advancing equity and diversity on campus. 

Freedom High School

High School Diploma

I graduated from Freedom High School in May 2017 in the top 1% of my class. I successfully completed the four-year Project Lead the Way (PLTW) Engineering Program and was an AP Scholar with Honors during my junior and senior years.

My Story

When I began my academic career at Georgia Tech in the fall of 2017, I was set on becoming an environmental engineer. I spent my first three years in college taking high-level math, science, and engineering courses, but I was unhappy in my studies. I found myself significantly more excited about my liberal arts classes and the potential to share technical concepts with nonexperts. When completing lab experiments, I noticed that I was more interested in writing the lab report than performing the experiment itself.  After taking some time for introspection, I decided to change my major to literature, media, and communication. 

 

Even though working as an engineer is not what drives me, I still love writing about technical topics and immersing myself in the STEM field. I chose to fuse my knowledge of engineering with my love of prose to become a technical writer.

Career Goals

I am currently seeking a full-time position as a technical writer for the fall of 2022. In this role, I hope to expand my existing knowledge of DITA XML, topic-based authoring, and structured authoring. Ideally, I would like to work with a variety of audiences, acting cross-functionally as a liaison between the technical expert and the nonexpert audience.

I have an incredible passion for diversity and equity, and throughout my time at Georgia Tech, I have learned how to implement these values into research, projects, communities, and infrastructures. In my role as a technical writer, I want to use my experience to make highly technical information both accessible and digestible to various groups. I want my artifacts to reflect the needs of all audience members and to be equitable in form, content, and style.

 

After some time in industry, I plan to pursue a master’s degree in technical writing. Ultimately, I want to become an expert in my field and earn a leadership position on a technical writing team.
