to Pitt Business
with Torrey Trahanovsky
I attended Spirit Academy in California and took classes at a nearby community college, Irvine Valley College.
When it came to my undergraduate education, my professors and high school teachers encouraged me to pick a great school for Computer Science and Business. I ultimately chose the University of Pittsburgh.
When I visited the campus and saw the unique culture and urban atmosphere. I committed the night I visited Pitt and cancelled visits to two other universities. I remember thinking to myself “I can succeed here”.
I participated in the Sales Academy hosted by Pitt Business.
During my time at Pitt Business, I interned with 5 Hour Energy!
Welcome to Pitt!
My freshman year I lived in the Service to Others Living Learning Community in Tower B. In Tower B, I completed over 120 hours of volunteer service along with my classmates and roommates.
Joining student organizations.
Over my time at Pitt, I joined several clubs including: FRESA, AMA, DECA, DIAL, WICS, CSC, Maker Space, SIB, LEAP, and BTA. I also started the Google Developer Student Club (DSC), where I was trained at Google’s Mountain View campus in California, and oversaw monthly workshops and challenges.
By joining these clubs, I was able to build a quality network of people who spent their free time developing their skill, like me!
I was lucky enough to visit Google’s Mountain View campus in California during my internship!
My Future is at Microsoft
I’m graduating from Pitt with a degree in Supply Chain Management. Upon graduation, I’ll be joining Microsoft Seattle as a Technical Program Manager in the Core OS and Intelligent Edge (COSINE) team, under Cloud and AI! I’ll be choosing my specific team later this summer, and working between the Xbox, Hololens, and Azure systems. I hope to utilize this role to make my way back out to Asia!
