I'm a college sophomore passionate about developing web applications that eliminate barriers between people and impactful technology. I study Computer Science in the College of Engineering at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, taking coursework concentrated in software development and technology entreprenuership. I'm currently the Web Development Chair for Reflections | Projections 2019, an annual student-run technology conference for students in the Midwest. Previously, I was a Hackerspace Instructor for a student-run course on campus, giving lectures on basic web development and Express routing. I'm currently looking for an internship for summer 2019 to build my skills as a developer.

CS 196 Freshman Honors
I teach college freshman how to make websites. For many freshman, this is his or her first experience making their own project, learning how to actually apply computer science toward developing applications. I was personally responsible for instructing over 40 students basic HTML & CSS, how to implement an API using Express, and interacting a MongoDB using Mongoose.Github

CS 125 Introduction to Computer Science
I'm innovating how computer science is taught. Computer science can't and shouldn't be taught with regular lecturing with students taking notes with pen and paper. Students need actual programming practice. I'm responsible for developing a web application using ReactJS, Redux, and Firebase that allows an instructor to assign a programming problem during lecture and get real-time feedback on student success, allotting students more practice and providing instructors with meaningful analytics.Github

Phillippine Student Association
I'm a proud Filipino. I'm passionate about embracing my unique heritage by immersing myself in an organization that celebrates Filipino Culture. I have performed with the organization's cultural dance team, Barkada, in the largest Filipino-American conference in the Midwest, Filipino Americans Coming Together (FACT). Here's a link to our performance.

Naval Reserve Officer Training Corps (ROTC)
I was in the Naval ROTC program on track to becoming an officer in the US Navy with a full-ride scholarship. Due to personal and academic reasons, I had to leave the program. I completed the military indoctrination training evolution known as NSO and was successful at maintaining a strict military-like schedule when in the program, attending Physical Training (PT) and classroom instruction (Drill) at 5:45 AM.
Aug 2017 - Nov 2018
CS 196 Freshman Honors
I managed a 5 person student project group, developing a distributed web hosting web application using Flask. I was responsible for maintaining the git repository and assigning tasks. I also gave two lectures on web development, focusing on HTML, CSS, and React. Here are the links to the lectures (skip to about halfway): Basic Web Development & Basic ReactJS Development.
Jan 2018 - May 2018
Computer Science Club
Founded club to spread computer science to the rest of the school after developing a passion for web development. Organized and Hosted a hackathon with over 100 student participants which was sponsored by companies like American Eagle and Make School.
Nov 2015 - May 2017
Science National Honor Society Chapter
Founded school's honor society chapter for professional development in science through learning and public speaking opportunities. Attracted over 70 competitive applicants to the society, inducted over 25 members.
Nov 2016 - May 2017
Schakowsky for Congress
Canvassed door-to-door for candidates in the 2016 election. Instructed volunteers how to use phone banking system.

a collection of projects i've worked on
Illini Advisor will use smart keyword filtering to make it easier for students to find courses they will love taking. Students will be able to dynamically type keywords instead of going through a long form of checkboxes to search for courses. This project is still in early development and lacks intended functionality.
Presenting Illini gives presenters interactive tools to pull real time data from the audience. Speakers can engage with their audience and show insights with real world data. Instructors can now make immediate decisions on what to cover during lecture with student feedback. To start, just upload a PDF of your slides. This project is still in early development and lacks intended functionality.
Using sockets to communicate between presenter and audience clients in real-time.
Schedule Optimizer uses computation to generate customized class schedules without users having to deal with details. Users say which classes they want to take, our website figures out how to make it work. I was responsible for developing an intuitive frontend using React and interacting the our team's backend API. This project initially started as a project for UIUC's CS 196: Freshman Honors course.
Responsible for modeling course data in ReactJS for seamless user experience. Interfaced with backend API to display course data and dynamically generated schedules.
Followed team conventions and git workflow in order to effectively collaborate with team members. Used Github stored codebase to stay synchronize with team members.
Organizer for Major League Hacking sponsored high school hackathon, Hack Ridge. Hack Ridge 2017 was a 24-hour open hackathon for high schoolers in the area and accommodated over 100 student hackers, many coming from other high schools. Sponsors include web design company American Eagle and programming course service Code School. Contributed to all aspects of the organizing process, focusing on marketing efforts directed toward Maine South H.S. students.
