My name is Pamela, and I’m a third year student studying Information Engineering and Media at Nanyang Technological University, Singapore. It has been some time since I started my internship at Preemadonna so this is a very belated ‘Hi!’.
I’ve always been interested in both the Arts and Technology, which explains the choice of my major. While my interest lies heavily on the design and aesthetic aspects of products, I often marvel at how we can harness technology – using it as our medium and tool, to bring our designs to life. For example, we require both a design perspective and coding (more technical) skills to develop a website!
When I heard about an internship opportunity at Preemadonna, I was excited! The vision of Preemadonna and the Nailbot – inventing smart beauty products with a focus in STE(A)M, are what I always have in mind. I thought it amazing how both aspects of the arts and technology must come together to build this awesome smart beauty product.
Aside from the daily to-do tasks at Preemadonna, I am also managing our Instagram account: @Preemadonna . These are some artworks I designed and printed on my nails using the Nailbot, and featured it on our Insta-stories. How cool is that!
Before I sign-off on this post, I would like to share an article which encouraged me to embark on my journey of both the arts and technology: Arts and Math and Science, Oh My! , by Amy who goes by the Medium handle ‘Sailor Mercury’. Hopefully, this will encourage you to recognize that these two fields are not mutually exclusive, but collaborative!
If you have not done so, follow us on Instagram for more updates on our Nailbot! Send us a shoutout on the Nailbot prints you would like to see printed, and look out for our Instagram Story feed. We might just feature your design ideas next!
