Mahatma Gandhi once said, "The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others". This year I would like to live by his quote and give back to my community by improving lives.

I am a Computer Science major and a Psychology and Entrepreneurship minor. My biggest purpose to be an Inclusion and Diversity Ambassador is to bring resources to low to middle income South Asian immigrants/international students, especially to promote women of color in STEM. Upon graduation, I would like to work in a corporate setting as a Software Engineer. I hope to work for a company that is customer centric and is providing real world solutions. I also plan to pursue my master's in Information Systems, and hope to one day be the CEO of a holistic healthy company. My favorite hobbies are writing, singing, dancing, working out, and doodling!

I hope to create a tighter-knit community, bring resources to students, and introduce Computer Science to underrepresented groups.

I am pursuing a Bachelor's in Computer Science. I believe it is essential to address the inequities that come with being an individual from an underrepresented group for universities that wish to increase diversity. I am very honored that this role allows me to empower and support my communities with institutional support. After graduation, I wish to attain a job that pushes me to be creative and innovate new ideas. In my free time, I enjoy riding my bike, playing piano covers for songs, and spending time with my loved ones.

My goal as an ambassador is to draw more talented individuals into our school and department, and make people realize the potential that entering this field can do for everyone.

I am a first-year Data Science major. I wanted to become an ambassador because I heard many stories from people claiming that the U's engineering department was not a very inclusive place. Through becoming an ambassador, I hope to make the school of computing a more inclusive place. After graduating, I hope to pursue further education and pursue research in topics related to Data Science.

My goal this year is to meet new people and help inspire others to join or continue in the computing fields through UCIC.

Hi I'm Isabella Bertagnolli a Senior majoring in Computer Science here at the U. I wanted to get involved in UCIC to help mentor and inspire younger students to continue their computing careers.  I wanted to become an ambassador to get involved with mentoring younger students in computing and so they can see more people who look like them succeeding in the field. I've been fortunate enough to have multiple amazing mentors throughout my college experience and I want to pass that on to others. After I graduate, I want to work for a company that is making a difference in its users' lives, however big or small. I'd like to continue to mentor students and help them prepare for the technical field through interview prep. My favorite hobby right now is Canyoneering!

I hope to listen to underrepresented students and help them feel as though they have community, while being my authentic self.

I am a sophomore studying Computer Science with an Emphasis in Entertainment Arts and Engineering. I am excited to hopefully be an ally and friend to others in the SoC. After graduation I hope to pursue EAE and work with children's hospitals to improve quality of care. My favorite hobbies include listening to music, doodling, and getting outdoors.
