Hi! I’m Paulina, a 4th year Civil Engineering major who is focusing on structures and technology management. I’ve spent the past 3 summers interning as a construction manager at various construction sites across the Bay Area. The last project I interned on involved lifting a historic building 12 feet to build a new parking garage underneath, and I really enjoyed being a part of the team that made that possible. After graduating this spring, I plan on entering the construction industry as a Project Manager. At UCLA, I am involved in ASCE, specifically in the Construction Management team that competes at the ASC 67 competition every year. Last year, I was a 3D designer for the Design Build team, and this year I am a team lead for the brand new Concrete Solutions team! Outside of school, I love to doodle, cook and bake fun things like croissants and sourdough.
I am a 4th year Materials Science and Engineering major from the Washington, D.C. area. I have a passion for teaching and mentoring others that started in high school when I became a tutor for my school’s Math Honor Society and began working as a referee for my town’s youth soccer club. Currently, in addition to being a Peer Advisor for UIP and URP, I am a Mentorship Family Head for the Materials Research Society at UCLA.
In my professional career so far, I have completed an internship at Soccer Skybox as a Data Analyst and I secured an internship with the FBI, but the program was eventually cancelled due to COVID-19 restrictions. After graduation, I intend to pursue a full-time position in industry where I can combine my knowledge of materials science with my written communication skills.
Hi, my name is Alyssa and I’m a 4th year Computer Science and Engineering major. Over the past few summers I’ve interned at companies like Cisco, Amazon, and Cloudflare. Along with my love of building things, I moonlight as a public affairs minor. You can also find me at ACM events (I’m a huge fan of Cyber, TeachLA, and Impact!) or with the brilliant team at Nova. Fun fact: I am the fourth of five siblings, so I’ve always leaned on my big siblings when I get lost — when you drop by to see me, ask me how many of us are Bruins!
