Hi guys!


A photo of me and my family at my grandma’s 80th birthday!

My name is Grace and I am currently a rising senior majoring in computer science. At WUSTL, you may recognize me in the KWUR studio, at STS, or in the LNYF and Spirit of Korea Samulnori performances! In this blog, I will be documenting my experience in San Francisco for the very first time.

As a computer science student, I can’t help but be intrigued by the San Francisco area: it’s the city where all the big corporations (Google, Facebook, Twitter, etc.) and upcoming startups reside in. I’ve spent all previous summers in Boston, my hometown, but have always longed to explore the major tech-city on the West Coast. This summer, I’ll be a software engineering intern at CodeHS, a startup that aims to help high schools across the nation teach computer science to their students. My main responsibilities will be working on improving the website and helping out with grading and tutoring students on site. I’ll be starting in about a week and a half!

Although the majority of my time will be working, I’ll be documenting my time exploring and living in the city as well. I hope to give those who are interested in interning in San Francisco themselves the perspective of a newcomer to the city. Hopefully my experience will inspire you to come out and spend a summer of your own at the city by the bay!
