Yuma is a second-year computer science student at the Georgia Institute of Technology. Before entering college, he was vaguely set on pursuing mechanical engineering before switching to computer science in the summer before his freshman year of college, 5 minutes before the deadline to declare a major. So far this has worked out for him. Yuma was introduced to the concept of design thinking at a hackathon that he almost did not attend and has been fascinated by the idea ever since. His life has been full of "just happened to meet this person" which has taken him in many different paths like track and field, robotics, and startups. Outside of just school work, Yuma enjoys break dancing and folding complex origami.
