Sasha is a senior majoring in MCS with a minor in Feminist, Gender, and Sexuality Studies. She has loved her experience in the MCS program because its interdisciplinary nature has allowed her to gain experience in a variety of fields. The MCS program has given her the flexibility to adapt her coursework to her changing academic interests, and to achieve a well-rounded Stanford experience, which includes studying abroad in Cape Town and section leading for CS106A and CS106B. As a peer advisor, Sasha is excited to leverage her own experiences juggling different commitments to help students identify opportunities (academic and otherwise) that cater to their interests and aspirations.
Outside of school, Sasha has interned as a software engineer at Google, and most recently, as a program manager at Microsoft. As a result, she has a treasure trove of knowledge related to professional development that she is eager to share with anyone willing to listen. She is pursuing a master's degree in Computer Science after graduation, and is pretty unsure of what she wants to do after that.
