About me

I am an undergraduate student at Seoul National University. I am currently majoring in Computer Science and Engineering with a strong interest in software development and open source software. I am also interested in solving problems and building open source software that has a strong impact on my community.

Besides coding, I am passionate about building technology communities. I have contributed to national and international technology communities Facebook Developer Circle: Hanoi, Developer Students Club by Google Developers, Microsoft Student Ambassadors, Global AI Community, SheCodesVietnam, GirlScriptIndia, and JunctionX to successfully share the knowledge and opportunities with people around the world.
On the other hand, I participated in several global summits such as Global Youth Leaders Summit 2019, Belt and Road Global Youth Leaders Summit 2019, Google Developer Student Club Lead Summit 2019, Asia-Pacific Youth Labor Trend Forum 2019, HPAIR Harvard Conference 2021 Embracing Change: Thriving in Innovation to take social responsibility and apply my technology knowledge to transform the community and create an impact on our society.
