Hi Preemadonnas! I’m Aastha and I am interning at Preemadonna this summer. I learned about Preemadonna and the Nailbot through my sister, Ankita. After watching the Nailbot tutorial video, I was amazed by how perfectly the cute designs appeared on the participant’s nails and knew this would be a great place for me to both help out and learn more.
I’m currently a junior at Cupertino High School hoping to major in Computer Science. I have participated in various coding camps presented by Jr. Java and Girls Teaching Girls to Code, where I developed a strong interest in problem-solving due to the challenging assignments. My favorite project was designing my own version of Bomber Man - an arcade-style, sprite game - in Java.
Aside from CS, I play basketball for my high school basketball team. I started playing when I was 8 years old and hope to continue playing as long as possible. Watching basketball is also one of my favorite activities, so I actively follow the NBA and March Madness. If I’m not doing homework or at basketball practice, I’m most likely at home watching Netflix or with friends watching Netflix. While I am guilty of binge-watching teen dramas and Spanish telenovelas, I also like to watch various documentaries based on topics such as wildlife, humanity, and science.
I am certain that this summer I will get to work on several interesting projects which will allow me to expand.
