Youna is a senior Stat/ML major minoring in CS and sociology. She is from Irvine, CA but Pennsylvania is now the fifth state she calls home. She is especially interested in machine learning applied to language processing and healthcare technology. Outside of classes, you might find her attending concerts, on the slopes, getting lost in a book, or probably just under a pile of blankets.
Xuan is a junior in ECE from the Philippines. He likes cooking, and is saddened by the lack of proper seafood in Pittsburgh. He also still doesn't know how long a yard is, and often questions why America does not use the metric system. At night, you can most certainly find him in Gates cramming a coding assignment, even though he's a TA for a CS class.
David is a senior in Biological Sciences. Hailing from Rochester, NY, he has had a LOT of experience with Pittsburgh-esque weather. He enjoys writing and practicing clarinet in his free time, and you can often find him in a practice room in CFA.

Shrila is a junior Cognitive Science major from San Jose, CA. She loves playing the ukulele, painting, and watching trashy movies/reality TV with her friends. She's arguably nocturnal, and has definitely napped in one too many buildings on campus.

Iris is a sophomore in CIT from Atlanta, GA where she has lived her entire life before coming to CMU. She is terrified of the cold weather here and misses mild winters.
