Aarathi is currently a sophomore at Hathaway Brown, an all girls high school in Northeast Ohio. As a freshman, she decided to sign up for the Intro to Computer Science class that her school offered, and was instantly hooked. As a sophomore, she has pursued this newfound interest in computer science by signing up for the AP course offered at her school. Aarathi is also an avid member of her school's debate team, a reporter for the school newspaper, a pianist and a tennis player. Over the summer, she also had the opportunity to pursue her interests in science and engineering by working at a Biomedical Engineering lab at the nearby Case Western Reserve University. She is not sure what occupation she would like to pursue but knows that, in any case, her computer science skills will only contribute to her success.
