Hi, I'm Caroline
I grew up in Fremont, California, surrounded by mathematics and computer science. However, I chose to spend most of my time with music. Growing up playing piano and violin meant that I spent a lot of time in an orchestra -- and by a lot of time, I meant going home at 2:00 am sometimes. The passenger seat of my mom's car served as a bed more often than my actual bed, but I wouldn't have traded my passion or my orchestra friends for the world.
Music was, is, and will always be a part of my life, but how I spent my free time began to change when I entered UC Berkeley. It started with the business organization Phi Beta Lambda (not a fraternity, as many assume), which exposed me to an industry run by data. Strategy consulting fascinated me in the way we broke down complex problems into simpler pieces of data and put them back together again to extrapolate a coherent plan of action. However, I wanted to work closer with the numerical data itself: the next semester, I joined the Statistics Undergraduate Student Association, where I am currently a director for the Research & Publications Committee.
Outside of my academics, I dabble in web development, graphic design, and puns. So many puns. I disaPUNt many of my friends.
