Community service has always been important to me, and I try to help out whenever and wherever I can. When I secured my summer internship with Intel, I started looking for ways that I could contribute in Portland, Oregon, and I found something perfect! I've joined a team of young birders (adults under age 30) to help raise funds for the Portland Audubon Society by conducting a birdathon the weekend before I start work! I'm thrilled that Portland Audubon is allowing me to do this! They've even given me my own page! It's the ideal way for me to get involved, help a cause I believe in, become more familiar with the area, and forge new friendships!
I spent part of my spring break at the 10th Annual Techapalooza Conference. I love industry conferences! They're a great place to catch up with old friends, meet new people, and hear about the latest trends in tech. Many thanks to Professor Lewandowski and Professor Mansfield for letting me know about this one!
