My name is Claire Follis and I am the newest addition to the Preemadonna team!
I first learned about Preemadonna through the non-profit, MakerGirl, which aims to show girls that they can be analytical and creative in the same space. Preemadonna inspires those same ideals, and was instantly a company I knew I wanted to be a part of.
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!
My name is Shilpa Sajja, and I’ll be interning with Preemadonna this summer. I just graduated high school and am an incoming Freshman at Brown University where I hope to explore fields like Public Health and International Relations.
Outside of interning for Preemadonna and helping with Nailbot, I've been an active entrepreneur exploring new business ideas. On July 19th 2018, I did my first business pitch. My business is called SquareOne and we focus of providing teens with career development programs through the use of our app. We created a platform that connects programs looking for high school students to students. This Pitch competition was held at 1871 and was organized through a group called Future Founders. This was a great experience because 2 weeks leading up the pitch I was given guidance by Future Founders on how to properly develop my business plan.
Throughout the two weeks no one really minded my nails. People even gave me comment on how nice and long my nails were. I remember a couple of days into the program I engaged in a very lively conversation on how to keep I keep my nails nice and long. So, my nails didn't affect me negatively at all.
In today’s American society, it is fair to say when males paint their nails it is considered stange. However, thousands of years ago painting nails was normal for men. Here where some examples.
In 3200 BC, people in Babylonia wore different nail polish colors to signify classes. The darker the color the higher class you are and alternatively the lighter colors were for lower classes. Even the soldiers would put on black and green nail polish. They actually believed having those colors on would intimidate and instill fear into their enemies.
