Last year, BASIS Independent Silicon Valley had its first graduating class. Recently we had the opportunity to interview Saveree Joshipura ’16, about her experiences at University of San Diego and her time at BASIS Independent Silicon Valley. Here’s what she had to say:
Q: What is your major? How did you discover this is what you wanted to study?
SP: My dad is an engineer, and I was pretty fascinated by his office since childhood. I knew from third grade I would end up majoring in a science—it seemed a natural fit for me. My parents introduced me to Java programming in freshmen year of high school and I loved it. I didn't think I would enjoy Computer Science but after taking a few Computer Science course, I was hooked. My best friend, Shweta, from BISV organized a hackathon at Microsoft during our senior year, and it showed me how important it is to have women in Computer Science/Engineering fields.
Inspired by the blissful feeling of uncovering connections, our blog Eureka! Silicon Valley is about sharing moments that capture the essence of what it is to be a BASIS Independent student, teacher, administrator, or family.
