Hello! My name is Josie Buchan and I am a junior majoring in Bioengineering from Grand Rapids, Michigan. On campus, I am apart of the Bioengineering Honor Society, Cal Against Cancer, Healthcare Consulting Group, Alpha Phi, and a research lab. I also joined the gymnastics club team just for fun! In my free time, I love spending time with friends, going to the movies, hiking, and reading. Feel free to come visit me to talk about clubs, classes, research, internship opportunities, or anything Cal related! I look forward to meeting all of you!
Hi! My name is Aylin Figueroa Uribe and I am a second year Civil Engineering student from Palm Springs, CA.

Hello! I am Vishrut Rana, a third-year IEOR student from Dubai, UAE. This summer, I had a great experience working at Tesla in a Supply Chain role with the Solar Energy team. On campus, I am involved with the Institute of Industrial and Systems Engineers and Formula Electric at Berkeley. I have also volunteered to mentor middle school students in Math through Bridging Berkeley. During my time off, I am mostly bingeing over a Bollywood movie or developing my rather rudimentary culinary skills. As an international student, my experiences in the past semesters have been truly phenomenal and I look forward to interacting with my peers to learn about theirs and help where I can! Feel free to stop by for a quick chat!
Hi everyone, my name is Eileen Wang and I’m a fourth year at UC Berkeley studying Electrical Engineering and Computer Science! I’m an out of state student originally from Austin, Texas where I was born and raised. On campus, I’m involved in the Society of Women Engineers, the Sage Mentorship Project and greek life. I’m very passionate about discussing opportunities to mentor kids and ways to encourage under-represented groups to follow STEM paths. I also studied abroad in Barcelona this past spring and got the opportunity to travel to some pretty cool places. I definitely encourage engineering students to consider studying abroad!
