Philosophy Statement

“Human beings, viewed as behaving systems, are quite simple. The apparent complexity of our behavior over time is largely a reflection of the complexity of the environment in which we find ourselves.”

– Herbert Simon: The Sciences of the Artificial

I chose this quote because I believe that humans are able to be understood on a psychological, biological, and physical sense.

Key Experience 2: MPowered Mass Meeting

I was always involved in entrepreneurship during my time in high school. As a result, I founded and led 2 non-profit and 1 for-profit organization during the last four years. The most compelling experience that I had was going through a startup accelerator program after winning $17,000 in a business pitch competition. Here at the University of Michigan, I am trying to hone in on my entrepreneurial drive and focus on developing projects in key areas where I know I can make an impact in. I went to the MPowered mass meeting because they reached out to me at Northfest and Festifall. I thought that overall the environment was very welcoming and focused. Furthermore, it was a great way to network and discover opportunities within Michigan and beyond.

Key Experience: Microsoft HoloLens

I recently tried out the Microsoft HoloLens at the Crowds and Machine Learning Lab on North Campus.  I thought that this was one of the coolest uses of technologies that I have ever experienced in my life. I came from a school that was extremely behind in terms of technology education. They did not even have a single computer science class. However, I wanted to really dive into the world of Augmented and Virtual Reality during my time at Michigan. As a result, I applied to the CROMA Lab on North Campus for my UROP project and was able to test the HoloLens development kit. It was fascinating experiencing what seemed to be completely real objects floating in ways that defied gravity.
