about me

hello! i'm areeta and i'm a 3rd year at university of california, irvine studying computer science with a minor in informatics, interested in technology, product management, and design. although born and raised in san francisco and foster city, my interest in tech didn't start until my summer at twitter with girls who code in the summer of 2016; it was the first time i ever saw, wrote, and understood code. since then, i've been jumping on opportunities to pay it forward and help computer science education be more accessible to students through organizing hackathons, hosting workshops, and leading organizations.

outside of cs, one of my favorite things to do is travel and experience different countries' cuisine! from sashimi from the japan's famous tsukiji fish market to southern california's homemade omomo boba, my taste buds want to experience it all. since i can remember, i have been a big fan of food; it always brought people together (often those of different cultures) and made people happy and full. a fun fact about me is that in winter quarter of 2020, i drank boba at least 4 times a week; irvine, ca has over 15 locations for boba so it is quite hard to not drink boba!
