Uma Mahto

Hello! My name is Uma Mahto and I am currently a fourth year at Muir College at UC San Diego. I am a Bioengineering: Bioinformatics major with a Design minor. In the future I hope I can pursue a career that combines my passion for education, people, and biotechnology. I consider my hometowns to be Santa Clara, California and Bangalore, India. I really love food and I am always down to go grab a bite or try something new! The loves of my life are my two younger sister and Oliver, my cute Jack Russell terrier.

When I’m not in class or busy with work, I love to go on adventures and explore San Diego. I enjoy being outdoors and love to hike and camp! In fact, my favorite place to camp with my family is Yosemite, what a Muir cliché. This summer I worked for a consulting firm, spent a lot of time in San Francisco City hanging out with friends, and watched Gilmore Girls and Game of Thrones. I’m a huge Disney fan and I’m very excited to be the HA for Joy House this year!

I am also a huge foodie! I love exploring new restaurants and trying unique foods. Some of my other interests include dancing, singing, cosplaying, going to the beach, and going on adventures.
