Sziasztok! I'm Alina, a senior studying A.B. Computer Science with certificates in Neuroscience and Technology & Society. I'm originally from NYC and studied abroad at AIT-Budapest in Budapest, Hungary in the Spring 2023 semester during my junior year. At AIT-Budapest, I took computer science classes (Computational Biology, Mobile Development, Scalable Systems, User Experience Design, Computer Graphics) while completing COS A.B. independent work in Human-Computer Interaction. I also learned survival Hungarian through a two-week intensive Hungarian crash course at the start of my semester, which gave me a good enough understanding of the language to order food from restaurants and purchase groceries in the marketplace. Beyond Hungary, I traveled to 13 other countries in Europe and the Middle East.

Student organization(s) I'm a part of at Princeton:
BodyHype Dance Company, Triple8 Dance Company

Feel free to also ask me about:
Navigating Independent Work while abroad; studying abroad as an Asian American student; financial aid
