about

Hi! I am a senior studying computer science and Spanish at MIT.

I was born in Vietnam and moved to Texas when I was just 5 years old. I grew up in a low-income household and got my first ever "job" at 6 years old being my mom's English translator every time we went grocery shopping.

Currently, I am building websites and visual data viz essays to tell stories and spark discussion on social topics ranging from experiences of minority groups to FOMO/FOND (the Fear of Not Doing [Enough]).

In my free time, I enjoy weight training, dancing, and playing ukulele!

I created this website to explore and share some of my many different interests. Thanks for stopping by!


This website is built off of a bare-bones Colorlib responsive template. I designed, coded, and animated everything here using Figma, HTML, CSS, and Javascript. Typefaces used include Raleway, Roboto, and Courier.
