And this is an octopus I drew, inspired by the Monterey Bay Aquarium.
Starting with my first internship in summer 2013, I have complemented every project with thorough documentation of my work, explaining my process and providing next steps for the person taking over the project. This applies not only to software, but also to other undertakings, for example the program impact surveys I wrote for Future Generations University.
On my current team, I have created templates for documentation and encouraged teammates to share knowledge through documentation. I have received public acknowledgement several times for the impact and thoroughness of documentation I’ve created.
I’m always seeking ways create a society where everyone thrives. So far my work in this has been mostly in encouraging diversity in the field of technology. I mentor aspiring computer scientists, I’ve taught Hour of Code workshops to students in local elementary schools, and I was a founding member of Middlebury College’s Women in Computer Science club. I also advocate for accessibility in my team’s coding practices and inclusion, mental health, and community at Google.
