In case you were wondering... It's pronounced "Tie-Lie" and it originates from an old Chinese proverb.
I'm a 2A Computer Science and Business Administration Double Degree student at the University of Waterloo. I have a burning passion for technology and a desire to empower and impact my communities.
In my spare time, I love rock climbing, hiking, and the outdoors. I regularly attend and organize hackathons to meet inspiring people and develop cool stuff. I'm also a community leader with heavy involvement in different initiatives centered around education and youth athletics.
I'm currently working part-time as an SWE at knct, the passion platform for University campuses! Also, I've previously interned on the Production Engineering Team at Questrade. Feel free to contact me if you have any interesting opportunities!
