Hi there! :parachute: Long time no see Hack Club. A few life updates… I voted for the first time a few weeks ago, been teaching kids how to code, playing around w/ how to create Figma widgets/plugins and did something kinda wild today… I jumped out of an airplane with my mom! It was a surreal, exciting experience and reminds me how small we are in this vast universe and to continue to do something outside of my comfort zone. I am super grateful and would love to do something like this again!

Tried Tartare and Ben & Jerry's Boom Chocolatta! for the first time! Pleasantly good for both. Would recommend trying tar-en out of ten

tbt to the time I skipped first period to participate in AI as a Mirror, a design thinking AI workshop  metaworkshops.cargo.site food for thought/random notes: • solutionism / absolutism • promises = risk • how do we ensure that AI systems act in accordance with human values and whose values? this is what I ended up creating in the 10 minute time frame we had and limited supplies... forest ai! an ai device that helps human understand environmental implications

I got Okinawa milk tea boba and started a physical gratitude journal yesterday! Very calming and therapeutic ❤️ also played around tailwind css and created a moodboard for a website

Mini ship! 🚢 Taught my first intro to UX workshop this past weekend I was pretty nervous about hosting one but I am glad I fought the fear and slightly conquered impostor syndrome in a way :p We had lots of fun in the process and vibed to DPR Live. The link to the presentation (removed speaker notes but dm me if you want to see it though)

Planned a solo trip to Santa Barbara! I purposefully left some wiggle room in my schedule to be spontaneous. Went e-biking, bought ice cream, saw lots of art in museums, thrifting, people watching at the pier and beach, etc. Very tired but had a lot of fun

I went to Festival of Arts and Pageant of the Masters and it was an amazing experience! The art paintings "come to life" and they tell the history behind each artist and painting. 10/10 recommend 🎨 (I wasn't allowed to take photos during the performance, so I'll insert a photo I found from the internet.

KWK Week Two: Our team created a fully functional and somewhat responsive MVP website in less than 2 days! Our team was passionate about the AAPI community and decided to create "Cafe Oori" -- your one stop shop to AAPI resources. ☕ It's bittersweet to say goodbye but I've met a great group of people these past two weeks and made great memories. Here's to Dora Cat and Just Dance!
KWK Week One: It’s the end of week one! It has truly been a blast being part of a community who hypes each other up in the comments, codes, and is just supportive overall. We reviewed HTML, CSS, and JS concepts. Along with what we learn, we do projects during our Night Hacks every day. I experimented with grayscale to color for a photo gallery project! (Photo credits to CODAME) ✨

I just finished Hydrangea Hacks! (s/o to the organizer + team 🐐 ) Our team created Signum, a web app that uses machine learning and camera vision to detect American Sign Language gestures in real-time for those who want to learn practical and necessary phrases in a fun, engaging way. We were able to create an image processing deep learning network that delivers a model with 90% accuracy in less than 24 hours. I helped with the UI/UX and research portion of the project and it was a fun process overall! Project link: devpost.com/software/signum-rf7dcs?ref_content=user-portfolio&ref_feature=in_progress

Config Day 2: Last day! Sad it's over; thank you Figma + the speakers! An incredible conference.:figma: Some takeaways from multiple talks: Find joy in making despite "design breakups" Always empathize Document everything Be intentional with your growth Universal challenges (Work priorities change. Prioritize innovation/the north star/hiring. Your team will look different when it started, so have a good pulse on morale and perspective. Scaling is not hustling, it's about building elastically and resiliency)

Attending Config 2021 Day 1 - "Figma is a space for everything and anything" Key takeaways from this awesome talk by @/ace Figma is a... • sketchbook - learn by doing 📝 • a playground - thoughtful chaos :artist: • home - comfort and purpose 🏡 • studio - bringing something to life ✨ • classroom - learning by teaching 💬 1. Master the toolbox :toolbox: 2. Get others involved 😎 3. Use what you make :figma:

Registered for Config (Figma's design conference) :figma: and released our school newspaper's first podcast episode you can check out here! It's about personal narratives and it serves as a historical archive of stories from students and other community members at our school. I am still figuring out how to podcast, but it has been a fun process piecing audio together

I spent most of my weekend practicing algorithmic problems, and I got an electronic kit from CodeDay. :codeday: I don’t have much experience with Arduino, so I am excited to see what I can build!

Long time no see Scrapbook! I created a virtual gratitude wall last night. My club collected over 500 responses, so I coded a word cloud and designed a website to display info. Happy Thanksgiving! :aom:
Added some dimension to my room. A few of my favorite postcards I got from people around the world. ❤️

It has been a hot ~minute~ week since I posted on scrapbook. One thing that happened though was that our team was able to get the creator of C++ to speak at our hackathon event. Super excited! 🙂

I am redesigning my school newspaper website so I made a maintenance page that redirects to this gif haha. Edit: I accidentally said our twice in the message. I fixed it!
I watched Korean drama, did some research planning, and college apps 🙂 here's an illustration of Prophet Orpheus dino I drew for the Hack Club GitHub repo

I found out about the OpenAI GPT-3 a few days back but this is really fascinating. As the article said, it's like the ultimate autocorrect based on what a person wants. We are just getting started folks... Other than that, I went on five meeting calls today preparing pitch presentations, lab meetings, etc. It was a blast but I am pooped right now. I am going to go to listen to some music and sleep earlier than I normally do today. :sleepingparrot:

Experimenting with emojis in python w/ friends. The good news arrived in the mail. Hack for the People launched today. College app shenanigans. The research project is making slow but steady progress. All in all, it has been a nice day so far! :obama-parrot:

Guest spoke at a CA state call with 115 participants this morning about the importance of voting. (Pre-register or register to vote if you are eligible!) Other than that, I finished the first draft of my research proposal and I am watching a documentary right now called Lo and Behold, Reveries of the Connected World

Finished stats for behavioral science homework, went on a nice walk, and created a Typeform. Small victories! While I was putting the Typeform together, I realized how we may have to rethink the way we measure data and how to incorporate inclusivity into it. The number of choices, variations, and the way the questions are worded can alter a person's perception of the questions. Hence, their answers may not be statistically representative. :monkahmm:

Homemade cookie dough mochi ice cream 👩‍🍳
The scrapbook is a cool way to reflect on small bits that happens day to day. Went on a nice drive and read a book while listening to music on the trampoline. About to code some more and finish a unit for a course.
Made homemade Korean spicy rice cakes (떡볶이) :yay:
I made a quick zoom background for the AMA tomorrow (mirrored version)

Attempting Kanye West in code pointillism style
TIL at my lab meeting that someone is trying to make a model that “integrates components which writes, executes, and assess code to perform a randomly determined search over the semantic space of possible programs.” This could be a possible game changer in code 🤔
