Aloha, I am Sophia! :hibiscus:

I am a Biomedical Engineering student at the University of Glasgow in Scotland. I am originally from Maui, an island in the Hawaiian Islands (USA). :palm_tree:

I am an alumna of Kihei Charter School, where I graduated in 2018. I am also proud to be an alumna of the Maui Economic Development Board Women in Technology’s STEMworks™ program and the Nalukai Foundation’s Nalukai Academy Startup Camp (2016 cohort). If you have been looking through my work, especially my projects from high school, and if you like what you see, please consider supporting these organizations that make a such a major difference in the education and future of Maui youth. You can donate to Kihei Charter School here, to STEMworks™ Hawaii here, and to the Nalukai Foundation here. The Nalukai Foundation and STEMworks™ program also support youth across the entire state of Hawai’i, not just Maui County.

As you can see from my projects, I really enjoy making things, learning new things, picking up new hobbies, and combining various interests. In my project work, I am particularly interested in the intersection of art, outreach, and STEM education. For my future career, I am very interested in the intersection of biology and computing. :herb::mag:

About This Website

I designed and built this website using mainly Jekyll, Bootstrap, and jQuery. The project gallery was made using jQuery and Masonry. The emojis are displayed thanks to the Jemoji plugin. :thumbsup: The website is deployed via Github Pages.

This website was designed with intention to be partly a portfolio website that describes my current and past projects, as well as various skills and hobbies I’ve worked on throughout the years. It is also a personal website, aiming to have space for writing and reflection on various interests, goal-setting and growth, and, in the future, hopefully some interactive storytelling elements. Overall, a place to put lots of things that interest me, and lots of projects that I’m proud of.

Mahalo nui for visiting! :heartpulse:
