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!
Hello beautiful Preemadonnas!
My name is Jacquelene Pham and I am moving toward my junior year at UCSC aiming for my B.S. degree in computer engineering. I have a loving family and group of friends back at home that continues to support each other to become better people. Scrolling through my social media feed one day, I found my friend Ankita, posting about a cool robot that left her painted nails fully designed– this was how I discovered Preemadonna. After hearing more about it, I was instantly amazed and inspired by how the organization put the two worlds of tech and beauty together. I knew it would be a wonderful place for me to contribute my passions and knowledge while learning more alongside the Preemadonna team.
My name’s Charley and I’m a junior at the Harker School. I spend my time dancing, doing homework, and being forced by my parents into college counseling meetings. (Fortunately, I was introduced to Pree through my college counselor.)
Because I’m a baby, my life’s story is pretty short. I went to a private preschool, grew up going to public school, and now I’m at another private school. This means my parent’s standards are realllllyyy high, but thankfully for me, my school offers so many classes that my parents want me to take (especially if they start with the letters AP). I took programming summer before sophomore year since computer science was a requirement and my mom forced me to take a different course since I didn’t get into to the AP Chemistry course. I was immediately intrigued by a little robot called Karel that we controlled using Java. I was so excited for what was to come. Then, we stopped using the robot and started creating larger and more logical Java projects. I was just about ready to give up since I realized I actually had to use more brain power. But, oddly enough, programming turned out to be one of my favorite classes of high school.

Hey everyone, for those of you who don’t know me, my name is Kyra (pronounced “Kee-ra”) Wayne, and I am a junior Web Design Engineering major in the Silicon Valley. Originally my career goal was to focus solely on computer programming (what better place than the Valley for that, eh?), but a long history of loving art had made it nearly impossible for me to not include design in my work. So, to provide a better understanding of said background, I would love to tell you all about how I became interested in art in the first place!
