I am currently a High School Junior
attending Evergreen Valley High School.

Below, you can check out some of the projects I've worked on
and a few of the clubs and organizations that I'm involved with.

theCodeMatrix

I was the President of the Tully Library Branch of the student run, non-profit organization. I ran a summer program dedicated to empowering elementary and middle school students on the world of computer science. Alongside my friends, we taught children in a low-income neighborhood the beginning steps of coding, while encouraging them to get involved with more and more projects that related to computer science.

Evergreen Valley Robotics

As a second-year member of the FTC Team GOATS 10761, I have been able to expand my horizons from being an assistant to the Mechanical Lead to becoming a crucial member of this team. As the Business Lead, I am actively looking to find sponsors for our team and managing our relationships, as well as looking towards more Outreach opportunities. With my role as a the Electrical Lead, I have also become a major contributor to the actual robot that we used to compete, as Manav Korlipara and I routed the wiring to maintaing a clean and organized system.

VALLEYhacks

I started a local, hackathon alongside my friend Santosh Lakshman and the non-profit organization, Hack+, in order to spread my passion of Computer Science to my peers. My role is to oversee the entire organization of this 36 hour event: from creating the website to securing a venue to gathering sponsors. I am extremely grateful to have such a wonderful organizing team by my side and hope to have the greatest hackathon possible.

VALLEYhacks is a student-run hackathon targeted and created for high school students in the Bay Area. We plan to create an all inclusive event for students and mentors alike to come together for a weekend and share knowledge about the computer science field. With our hackathon, we hope to convince students that anyone can learn to code and take one step towards eliminating the “computer nerd” stereotype. We hope to create a sense of community amongst these students in order to break barriers and normalize hacking for all. The hackathon will offer an environment focused on increasing diversity in the field of computer science.

EasyATutors

Noticing the insane prices of tutoring for AP courses, my friends Neel Raja, Prabhdeep Kainth, and I decided to create a free, 10-week crash course on AP Physics 1, AP Calculus AB, and World History AP. Our programs were hosted at our local libary and we worked closely with students and teachers to ensure that the material we were teaching was relevant and correct. We hope to expand the amount of subjects we offer tutoring in, as well as involve more of the community into our program.

BORD

Initially created as a project for AngelHack SV 2017, my friend Akshin Gopal and I have decided to begin to prototype our group payment platform and hope to release the initial app by the end of 2018. As high school entrepreneurs, we feel grateful to have the resources of Silicon Valley at our disposal to develop our revolutionary app that will seek to draw the bridge and close the gap between payment and friendship.

Evergreen Valley Speech & Debate

I am a part of the Evergreen Valley Parliamentary Debate team, which is ranked third in the nation. Here, I work on my public speaking skills and my overall fluency.

InternMart

As one of the winners of the Silicon Valley TYE Chapter, my team and I are pursuing our recent business adventure on a large scale and hope to release our database and product to the public by Quarter 4 of 2017.

Evergreen Valley DECA

I attended the DECA State Career Development Conference, where I placed in the top 20 in the state for Apparel and Accessories Marketing.

Evergreen Chess Club

I volunteer at my local library with my friends Akshin Gopal and Santosh Lakshman and host free chess tutoring sessions biweekly.

Skills

My goal as a high school student is to build a skillset comprised of all types of qualities.
From coding to analyzing speeches, my plan is to hit every task and challenge I'm faced with head on and become the best that I can become.

  • Coding

    Although I recently started coding, last year, I hope to be fluent in both Java and Python by the end of 2017. Currently I can code in HTML, CSS, and some JavaScript.

  • Photography

    I enjoy taking and editing photographs on Adobe Lightroom and Adobe Photoshop. Here is my Flickr where I upload most of the photos I take.

  • Music Production

    As a hobby, I enjoy making music and beats with the help of my friend Sunny. We've partnered up to make two EDM songs: Fuego and a Super Mario Bros. Remix.

  • Marketing

    At my high school, I represented our school in the state DECA competition for Apparel and Accessories marketing where I placed in the top 20. Moreover, I was a marketing head at ResinArtDesign, where I helped a small Italian Startup reach out to customers in the Bay Area and US.

  • Debate

    For the past two years, I've been able to go represent my school in Parliamentary Debate. I have partnered with Kalyan Pullela and have won two awards for a perfect record on two instances at CFL Tournaments. I enjoy debate and plan to do it and a speech event for my following years.

  • Editing

    In addition to filmmaking and photography, I love editing and comprising movies and videos. I've recently gotten into Color Grading and use DaVinci Resolve to color grade any films or clips for my videos or for my friends. Normally, I do use Adobe Premiere Pro CS6 and occasionally use Sony Vegas Pro 14 and Adobe Premiere Pro CC.
