Presenting our fabulous cast of techie officers…

Interested in almost anything she knows exists, Angela became fascinated with both computer science and the intricacy of human mind from spending countless hours in robotics labs since she was 15 years old. She changed to a computer science major from neuroscience because she couldn’t resist the creativity and possibilities that CS allows, the ultimate happiness of problem solving, and the power CS has in improving lives and in advancing other fields.

Favorite Foods: small steamed buns, duck soup hotpot, lychees, mint chocolate ice cream, and anything sour related

Hobbies: reading, wondering, traveling, swimming, badminton, tennis, soccer

Rittika never thought she would love Computer Science when she first came to college. For her it all started after she took CS100 and CS101 at MHC. Once she was hooked to the the different allurements of CS, she couldn’t get out.

She likes chocolate, thinks origami is beautiful, is fascinated by fantasy and admires punctuality and diligence.

Growing up in a family where the bioengineering industry seemed to be the right track, Bei had no idea she would be so profoundly interested in Computer Science until she took CS 101 at Mount Holyoke. She then became fascinated with everything Computer Science entails and fully committed herself to this field of study.

Favorite Foods: Spicy Sichuan hotpot, sticky rice, chocolate ice cream

Favorite hobbies: computer games, iPhone games, writing up small programs just for fun

“I admire those who program to rock and shake the world and those who help to build a better world with their computing skills. Programming always provides me with gratification, or even a sense of achievement at the end. I believe that computer science will teach me how to use computers to make the world work as it does.”

Favorite foods: kiwi, berries, grapes, pitaya, pawpaw, sesame paste, nuts, black rice congee with beans, seafood, sushi

Favorite hobbies: reading, traveling, math, physics, foreign languages, chess and Chinese chess (still trying to learn go), dancing, music, movies, badminton, squash, racquetball, etc…

Although she aspires to be a math teacher, Dora has fond memories of programming in CS 101. She admires those who can delve deep into programming, do it well, and then laugh cheerfully at the end of the day. This applies to people of all sorts.

Favorite foods: Noodles, anything sweet and sour related

Favorite hobbies: Reading, writing, drawing
