I hope to share my experience with younger students through mentoring this year. I just joined a mentoring program called SWIMM.

Everything has an acronym here. It stands for Stanford Women in Math Mentoring. It links female undergrad students with female grad students. We officially start this fall. Currently 30 undergrads have expressed strong interest and 25 grad students are available to share their experiences with them. I don’t want other people to go through what I’ve already found doesn’t work. I want to share what I’ve learned.

I never planned to become a mathematician. I liked math growing up because it made sense to me – plug this number into this equation here, and you’ll get an output that follows some predictable logic.

I was always interested in how the world worked, and looking back now, I can see my interest in performance optimization developing over time.
