About Me

Listen to some chill beats?

My name is Wendy Li and I was born and raised in San Francisco, California. I started my college career studying fine art and decided that I wanted to do something more impactful with my creative abilities and time in University. I decided to change my major to Computer Science in my second year and through my years, I have gotten involved with organizations and events where I was able to use my knowledge of CS as well as my passion for the arts.

With my involvement, I really wanted to dedicate my time to helping increase diversity in the field of STEM. I was the director of Rose Hack, my university's first ever women-centric hackathon. It was hugely successful with overwhelming support from over 40 corporate sponsors, students, and faculty. The event was partially hosted by UCR's up and coming new engineering organization, Women In Computing of which I was the treasurer. With my dedication and passion for helping minority groups in the field of stem, I was awarded with a scholarship to Grace Hopper Celebration 2018 as a Grace Hopper Scholar.

TLDR: Art student turned engineer fighting for women in STEM
