Preferred Name:
Noemi, she/her/hers

Where are you from?
I am originally from Romania with hungarian ethnicity. The reason for this is that I grew up in Romania in a Hungarian family. It is like when a family lives in the US: they learn to speak English, but they also try to keep their mother tongue. My family moved to the states when I was 15 years old. I currently live in Morton Grove and I commute every day.

Major/year:
Computer Science, Sophomore year

Why did I decide to major in engineering?
I was good at math in school and using my creativity for the greater good seemed to be the driving force of my life. Through Computer Science, I can think and create at the same time, while making the world a better place!

Hobbies and Interests Outside of School:
I absolutely love to learn, so I am trying to keep up with the 4 languages I speak. That is partly why I am intending to minor in Germanic Studies, so I can perfect my German skills next to Hungarian, Romanian and English, and maybe pick up a fifth language in the future!
In my free time, I enjoy being a scout leader at ‘Hunyadi Mátyás Scout Troop 19’, a Hungarian scout organization that supports the beliefs of boy scouts, as well as Hungarian culture.
As in my alone time, you can catch me thinking about the meaning of life or appreciating the little things, like train rides, the sound of the city, and the beautiful buildings in Chicago!
