University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill, Computer Science

I'm currently a Computer Science and Business double major at UNCCH. I have always had a knack for technology and have held tech positions for over a year now. My tech interests mostly lie with Apple products but as I learn more programming skills I have broadened my horizons. I love puzzles and some might say I'm too much of a problem solver. Overall, I'm always up for learning something interesting or facing a challenge!As bit more of a personal bit, I love to travel. I have seen a good a bit of the world already and can't wait to see the rest! I also love music festivals and attend Shakori Hills every year!

Moving I have helped my two older sisters move at least a dozen times as well as having moved three times myself. I have an extremely spacial mind and am extremely creative, and good, at figuring out the best way to move difficult objects.

Cleaning Growing up my mother ran a tight ship. Mondays were sheets, Tuesdays were bathrooms, Thursdays were towels, and Saturdays was rooms. While I loathed her strict regimen growing up I sure have grown to appreciate the extremely extensive and meticulous cleaning skills she passed on to me; from a messy kitchen to a disorganized room to a dirty bathroom - I know how to clean it all.

Events I have always been extremely involved in school outside of academics. This has resulted in me becoming very accustom to putting on events that attract people and go smoothly, which lead to me picking up a job as the pool events coordinator at the Raleigh Racquet Club while I was one of the swim coaches there.

Yard While my mom reigned over the inside of our house, my dad's domain was the yard. Not surprisingly, my dad ran just a tight a ship as my mom [see Cleaning Endorsement]. Again, while I hated it growing up, once you're on your own you realize how nice it is to know the most efficient way of doing a lot yard work tasks such as edging, mowing, blowing/raking leaves, power washing, and clipping.

Organizing I'm a born and raised perfectionist, so I usually take organization to a whole new level. I view organizing as a puzzle. The prize is to find the most efficient and effective way possible to organize an assortment of things so that they are easiest for you to access when you need them, most pleasing to the eye, and simple to understand.

Tutoring I have a very strong passion for teaching. Honestly, if there were more money it I would probably pursue it as a career. Seeing the lightbulb go off is a priceless moment and makes me feel like I've really added to someone's life. I have had a ton of experience tutoring many subjects, mostly in math and science, and also with technology, especially any and all Apple products. I'm extremely patient and very good at explaining things in different ways until the full understanding has been grasped.

Painting I've only painted 4 rooms in total, but 3 of those have been within the past 4 months so I feel very comfortable in the area. 2 of these rooms were simple solid color wall projects, but I have also done my room with murals on each wall that join together very cohesively.

Tech I've been providing in-house tech help to my family since I was 8 years old. By 13 I had far surpassed my parents and have since then been able to work for both the on-campus Apple Repair shop, but also at an Apple Store itself as a Service Specialist. I have been trained very extensively on Apple products as well as on how to teach others how to use them. I am also able to work with almost all other technology including, TVs, WiFi, appliances, etc.

Anything In addition to organization, I also have a keen eye for the aesthetic and can help with design projects either home or something else.
