My name is Janice Lin and I am a junior in the Health Science major at Stony Brook University. I was a computer science major during my freshman year before I switched to Health Science. I found computer science to be very fun when I wasn't in a rigorous classroom environment. I was in Girls Who Code during my junior year of high school, which made me think that comp sci is my thing to pursue. However, I did not end up liking it in a more formal environment. Before Stony Brook, I graduated from Townsend Harris High School in Flushing, Queens. I am Chinese-American. I was born in NYC and now live in Maspeth, Queens when I am not here at Stony Brook.
My family consists of my parents, older brother and sister, younger brother, sister-in-law, and niece. My older brother graduated from Stony Brook University in 2006 and is currently in the medical field. My older sister graduated from Dartmouth and is also now in the medical field. My younger brother is currently a freshman here at SBU.
A couple years ago, my sister-in-law got added to the family in September and just a little bit over one year ago, my niece was born. She is currently just one year and one month old.
