Semel HCI has been a wonderful place to learn, grow, be inspired, and contribute to the UCLA community. I am so grateful for all the people and experiences I’ve had throughout the past two years.

SO grateful for my experience with HCI. My time at UCLA wouldn’t have been the same without it. I have found such a wonderful support system and valuable skills that will take me forward.

I’ve gotten more confident in my own voice and capabilities, especially in the context of communicating with faculty members. I’ve also learned a lot more about the various aspects of wellness, and along the way, I have become better at taking care of and finding time for myself.


I believe working with Semel HCI has encouraged me to prioritize my mental, emotional, and physical health above all else. It’s provided me with a community of like-minded individuals who inspire me through their ways of maintaining health and well-being even when life does not go as planned.
