Bio

Aasha is a junior in high school who has been interested in coding for as long as she can remember! She’s worked with Python, Swift, Javascript, Objective-C, Java, and more, and has done work in the area of iOS app development. She is particularly interested in how she can combine her love for computer science with her other passions, such as music! That’s how she became interested in ChucK, which is a programming language for sound and music synthesis. At school, Aasha is the founder and president of a program called Women in STEM Careers, in which successful STEM women share their experiences with aspiring high school girls. She is also the vice president of the Girls Who Code chapter at her school. When she’s not tinkering with technology, Aasha loves spending time with her family. Some of her other hobbies include reading and playing the guitar. She’s also an avid equestrian and can’t wait to get back in the saddle once Covid-19 permits! Aasha has had two beautiful Golden Retrievers, and has always loved training them to do new tricks, from sit and stay to jumping through hula hoops!
