Whomst?

Hallo! My name is Anna (she/her) and I'm a Taiwanese American gal studying Computer Engineering and Computer Science at the University of Southern California. I'm originally from Northern Virginia and I graduated from Thomas Jefferson High School for Science and Technology. That's where I discovered my love for filling niches at the intersections of different fields. I'm broadly interested in designing and writing code to build impactful products, AI ethics and policy, and expanding tech journalism to a broader audience.

At USC, I'm a Viterbi Student Ambassador, where I share my experience as a student studying engineering at USC with prospective students and their families. I also recruit amazing speakers, publish cool articles, and sometimes write code at HackSC.

By leveraging my technical background and my love of writing, I cover noteworthy innovations, accomplishments, and events for the USC Thomas Lord Department of Computer Science. I also lead copy editing efforts at College Brief, a nonprofit dedicated to instilling newsreading habits in college-aged audiences. I previously led the copy desk at Annenberg Media, where I began my journey of contributing to accurate, high-quality journalism.

In my (rare) spare time, you can find me eating Taiwanese food, listening to music, and running from my life problems. Feel free to reach out via email; I'd love to chat!
