Einar Balan

he/him

Officer

Hey, I'm Einar and I'm a 3rd year CS major! When I'm not working on projects for school or ACM, you can find me working out, playing video games ( <3 botw), obsessing over avatar, or forcing myself to be an extrovert :)

Maggie Li

Hi! I'm Maggie, a 3rd year CS major, and I am passionate about connecting people through code :) Outside of Hack, I love to rewatch my favorite TV shows, find the best hidden gems on Yelp, play badminton, and make my friends matcha lattes.

Jakob Reinwald

Hi, my name is Jakob and I'm a 3rd year CSE major! I've been in Hack for the last couple quarters. :) Aside from school, I really like playing basketball, watching the lakers, hiking, playing games, and most importantly, hanging out with my cats!

Chandra Suresh

James Wu

Helloo! I'm James, a 2nd year mechanical engineering major (though looking to switch to CS), and I think coding is a really cool way to express creativity and have an impact! In my free time, I enjoy reading, playing badminton or basketball, or just hanging out with friends. :D

Alex Xia

he/him

Officer

Hi, I'm a 4th year CS major from Hong Kong. Aside from coding, I like to watch anime and play games – occasionally, I am baited into watching kdrama. When I am not doing these things, I am at the UCLA badminton club.

Eric Yang

What's up guys! My name is Eric, and I'm a 3rd year CS major. Outside of coding, I'm an avid Spikeball fan and love to dance. My goal in life is to try every boba place I come across.

Katelyn Yu

she/her

Officer

Hello! I'm Katelyn, and I'm a 3rd year CS major. My passions lie in making CS accessible to beginners and building strong and communities. Otherwise, I'm a self-proclaimed boba connoisseur who enjoys karate, reading, creative writing, falling down the YouTube rabbit hole, and staying up later than is probably wise :)

Nathan Zhang

Officer

Hey! I'm Nathan, and I'm a 2nd year Computer Science and Engineering major. In my free time, I like to lose hours in the day by the piano, execute clean drop shots on the badminton court, and explore LA for the best food the city has to offer.
