At the end of the school year, I like to record what I spent time on. Here are a few things I've worked on throughout my second year at MIT. (See freshman year here). All of these are the structured parts of my past year. I spent a lot of time working and researching different topics, but I'll save that for a different post.
- MIT Club Tennis: I continued playing on MIT's club tennis team, which I first joined as a freshman.
- NASA: I worked at NASA as an intern during IAP. More about my experience here
- Science Olympiad @ MIT: We successfully ran MIT's first invitational tournament, bringing over 1,000 high school students from around the country to MIT's campus for the weekend.
- Thiel Fellowship: I applied for the Thiel fellowship. This was the culmination of months of research into the history of computation. I was selected as a Thiel Fellowship Finalist, and interviewed in San Fransisco. The application process was interesting, however it was even more interesting spending time experimenting and thinking about interaction design.
- USAGE: I joined the Undergraduate Student Advisory Group in EECS, providing feedback on changes to the EECS department.
- Zeta Psi: I moved from Simmons into the house this year, and was elected Vice President.
