Cheyenne Goh (she/her) UCalgary Software Engineering Student

Hi there! I'm Cheyenne.

I am a third-year student pursuing a BSc in Software Engineering with a minor in Mechatronics from the Schulich School of Engineering at the University of Calgary. I was born on the bustling tropical island of Singapore and raised on the placid prairies of Leduc, Alberta. I was also a short track speed skater in a past life.

Majority of my university courses were conducted in either Java or C/C++. However, during my internship I programmed primarily in Python. My industry experience includes writing software to manage MySQL databases and programming PLCs using ladder logic. I am proficient with graphic design software, including Adobe Photoshop and Inkscape, as well.

Travel

Since moving from Singapore to Canada in 2003, I have been to six provinces across the country (Alberta, British Columbia, New Brunswick, Ontario, Quebec, and Saskatchewan). I have also been able to return to Singapore fairly frequently over the years. In total, I have set foot in 29 countries over five continents. I’ve visited Australia, Austria, The Bahamas, Belgium, Belize, Bulgaria, China, France, the Holy See (Vatican), Honduras, Hungary, Indonesia, Italy, Japan, Malaysia, Mexico, Monaco, the Netherlands, the Philippines, Poland, South Korea, Spain, the United Kingdom, and the United States. I have passed through Germany, the ROC (Taiwan), and the United Arab Emirates on layovers as well.

Interests

Video Games

I enjoy playing video games even though I am objectively terrible at them (someone once said to me, “I never seen someone so bad at video games before–I didn’t know it was possible…”). My favourites include Persona 4 Golden, GRID Autosport, Mario Kart 7, Super Smash Bros. Melee, Pokémon Ruby, and osu!. [Steam, Discord]

Cycling

Although I’ve largely become a bum since retiring from short track, I still enjoy going on the occasional ride with friends on my road bike. I hope that I can muster the motivation to do it more often. [Strava]
