My name is Megan Cho and I am currently an undergraduate majoring in Linguistics and Computer Science with a Film minor at the University of California, Los Angeles.
Throughout my entire life, I have moved countless times within Germany, Canada, Australia, and America. This has been a unique experience that has molded me to be constantly open-minded and excited for change.
Some of my hobbies include chalk pastel and digital art, film analysis, video gaming, playing the drum set, creative writing, and DSLR photography.
Learning new concepts is also a great pleasure of mine, so last year I had started dabbling with HTML programming for fun. I was pleasantly surprised to realize how enjoyable it was for me, so I made the grand decision to change my major from Linguistics to also incorporate a Computer Science degree. Computer Science courses at UCLA so far have given me a working proficiency at C++ and the Linux operating system. Shockingly, learning how to code felt similar to the times I taught myself Mandarin Chinese, Japanese, and French. I have always viewed language as a key to unlock a plethora of new cultures and experiences to explore, so my drive for further
knowledge has been a motivating factor to continue mastering new languages. Viewing coding the same way, I took the exciting initiative to intern at LG’s information technology service subsidiary during my freshman year summer to attain a deeper understanding of how Computer Science could be applied to a corporate setting. During my time at LG CNS, I had the honor to work alongside the Machine Learning project team and learned Python and Excel coding for the first time. I coded Excel pivot tables to help organize OLAP cube sale statistics, as well as creating multiple Python programs using JSON and PANDAS to read and write CSV files that included up-to-date API data. I then sent the files to the LG Electronics headquarters, and was thrilled to hear that my codes proved to be efficient and helpful when used by headquarter employees. The Machine Learning team and I worked within a progressive agile environment, and I thrived in such a flexible, supportive, and collaborative workspace.
