First Month in San Francisco: A Photoessay

The stereotypical SF intern picture
The stereotypical SF intern picture and my new profile picture!

In the past month, I’ve been pretty busy with spinning up at my summer internship at Stripe and getting settled into San Francisco. However, I can say that I’ve fallen in love with the city. So far, with friends from UIUC, Stripe, and more, we’ve tried dim sum in Chinatown, hiked around Angel Island, and biked across the Golden Gate Bridge to Sausalito. I’ve even taken a stereotypical San Francisco intern picture featuring the Golden Gate Bridge in the background and the Stripe logo on my hoodie!

So without further ado, here are some of the pictures I’ve taken in the past month.
