Hi, my name is Jalaj Punn. This upcoming semester will be my 2nd year and my major is Computer Science. I was born in India and moved to California when I was 6 years old. I was mainly raised in the Sunnyvale/Cupertino region and moved to Milpitas last year. I graduated from Monta Vista High School. Some things I like to do in my free time are play basketball, hang out with friends, bake, and program. My aspiration is to obtain a Bachelor's Degree in Computer Science and my dream school is UC Berkeley. Last summer, I took a physics class. My main reason to becoming a mentor is to pass on knowledge and help motivate students to reach out for their goals/aspirations. I believe that every student is unique and that he/she can become whatever they set out to become. I hope to push students to go after their dreams and to never give up!
