Poetry, Algorithms and MIT Prof

Podcast Episode #38

 On Creating with Humility: Anika Gupta on her time at MIT.


Anika Gupta studied Computer Science and Molecular Biology at Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT).

Anika loves poetry. Little did she know that it would come in handy at MIT.

In an algorithm class in the upper years, she discovered her professor was not only very smart, but also shared her love for poetry

The Clue: On the first day of class, the professor began by comparing coding to poetry.

This led her to exchange poet recommendations with her professor, which started a connection that would continue after MIT.

You would certainly expect to find poetry on a college curriculum, but an algorithm class may not have been on that list!

We find this kind of vignette and more, in our Podcast with Anika about MIT:

  • MIT - An Iconic School in a Great Location
  • Why MIT?
  • The intense MIT Experience
  • Vibrant Campus Life
  • Advice to Girls: Find Mentors in Science
  • MIT: Where Peers Care!

If you are college-bound, this Podcast is a must listen to be inspired and motivated about your own future.
