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 is Anisha Tavva and I am a rising third year at the University of California, Santa Cruz pursuing a BS in Computer Science. A couple of fun facts of myself include: I love exploring nature, I love reading&binge watching TV, I love to spend time with my family&friends. I have lived in the Bay Area my whole life and love exploring the vast food places and nature sites. I absolutely love spending my time in the city, San Francisco. I am a barista at a local café in my school and love interacting with people. I am beyond excited to be a summer intern for Preemadonna!
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.
Hello Preemadonnas! My name is Ankita Upadhyay and I am currently a rising junior at UCSC pursuing a B.S. degree in computer science. I have a loving family with amazing, supportive parents, and a cute little sister who may or may not be better than me at coding. My best friend, Sneha, told me about Preemadonna and I was instantly intrigued by everything it stands for. Empowering women, inspiring creativity, and promoting self-expression all while utilizing tech skills by creating, inventing, designing…the possibilities are unlimited!
What’s up Preemadonnas? My name is Sneha Ramesh, I’m 19 years old and a current sophomore at Santa Clara University majoring in Computer Science. I’m a new intern at Preemadonna, and I’m going to be working with Kyra to develop the new “Code Your Own Nail Art” website and then hopefully work on even more diverse projects in the future!
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.
I went into the Maker Kit challenge with virtually no experience in building or in robots, so you can imagine I was a little overwhelmed when I dumped out all the pieces in front of me. Honestly, all the parts looked the same; it was hard to distinguish what pieces were supposed to fit with each other. But I decided to give it my best, and to my surprise, I actually began to put the printer together without any issues!!!
Hi Preemadonnas! I’m Stella, I’m 19 years old, and I’m currently studying Computer Science at the University of Pennsylvania as well as interning for Preemadonna this summer! Right now, I’m doing tech-y things in college (tons of programming), but I’m also super into design and art. In the future, I hope to combine both programming and design and work in a field like UI/UX design or web development!
