My name is Shirley and I'm from sunny Los Angeles. I'm a third year at UC Berkeley studying Electrical Engineering and Computer Science.

At Berkeley, I'm the webmaster for Society of Women Engineers. This past summer, I was a software engineering intern at Visa on the Data Product Development team. Next summer, I'll be interning at The Walt Disney Studios as a software engineering intern!

I'm passionate about supporting women in tech, especially after being a scholar for supermodel Karlie Kloss's coding camp, Kode With Klossy.

On my spare time, catch me playing volleyball, ping-pong, taking photos, watching sunsets, drinking boba or snuggled up watching a good ol' movie. Oh, and feel free to contact me at

Another year, another Grace Hopper Conference for the books! This year's conference was just as exciting with almost 22,000 amazing women gathered at George R. Brown Convention Center in hot and humid Houston, TX. Thank you for the scholarship and all the accomodations! Since I was hunting for junior year internships for the summer, the conference sadly became a hectic week of interviews, and with that came a lot of rejections, but it's all part of the process. However, on a brighter note, I got even better swag than last year including gecko leggings from Geico, a Sims Plumbob headband, and a bath bomb. Company party lineup: Instagram, Amazon, Disney, Snapchat, Google

This semester, I got the opportunity to attend the SWE National Conference in Austin, Texas funded by our SWE chapter. It was five days of delicious food, seeing empowering women speak about working in the workplace, discovering new engineering companies I have never heard of, getting lots of tech company swag, and of course, sightseeing in the beautiful city with other SWE members. I finally got to try the legendary Voodoo Doughnuts after my history teacher, Mr. Madrid, recommended it to me in high school. Since the conference was a week before Halloween, I experienced the Day of the Dead parade on the streets of Austin, and at night, the bustling city dressed up in costumes in the freezing cold.

Going to the Grace Hopper Conference in Orlando, Florida was one of the best experiences this semester. I was fortunate to receive a scholarship through PwC to attend the conference with everything paid for. Though it was pretty much a mad dash for internships and interviews, the conference was a great place to meet other women in tech and hear them speak. Melinda Gates was the keynote speaker! Since this was my first conference, I was very overwhelmed, talking to company after company at the career fair for three straight days, not knowing what to expect. It was difficult to market myself to company reps genuinely, but as I talked more and more, I was more comfortable with exhibiting my achievements and experiences, positively. Oh, I forgot to mention that the swag at GHC was amazing and the best I have ever seen, and I even got to go to the Snapchat after party and Disneyworld!
