Please help us welcome our newest intern, Ulysse Carion. Ulysse was born in Paris, France, then moved to San Diego, CA, where he attended La Jolla High School. He is currently studying Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at the University of California, Berkeley. Besides computer programming, he spends his free time learning, reading, and enjoying nature. At Quizlet, Ulysse will be spending his summer on our web team, working on improvements and new features for all our users.
We're excited to have Ulysse join us for the summer! Read on to learn more about him:
Quizlet: If you could learn to do anything, what would you learn?
Ulysse: I always wished I could play the piano really well, so I'd learn that and musical composition to go along with it.
Q: Who's taught you the most?"
U: My parents, of course. I browse Wikipedia a lot, so their generous editors have taught me a lot too.
Q: What was your most rewarding learning experience?
U: I hope my internship at Quizlet will be. ;) My high school math teacher, Mrs. Creswell, had a talent for making math straightforward and fun. Her class was a pleasure to be in.
Q: What was your favorite subject in high school?
U: Biology - it's like a design class, but for living creatures.
Q: What's the most interesting article, blog, or book you've read recently?
U: I'm currently working through Reasons and Persons by Derek Parfit. It's about philosophy, and it's already changed my views on personal identity, ethics, and what I should do with my life. Parfit uses interesting thought experiments to reveal the inconsistencies in our beliefs about ourselves and the world; it's deeply thought-provoking stuff.
