hello! i'm areeta and I'm an incoming 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.
previously, i interned at amazon as a software development intern under their amazon future engineer program for 1st and 2nd years and spent a very fun summer at their headquarters in seattle, wa. a fun fact is that i was 20 feet away from jeff bezos at their annual prime day concert with katy perry! this summer, i was a student training in engineering program (step) intern, formerly known as engineering practicum, at google working on the google ads team.
currently, i am looking for summer 2021 and fall 2021 internships! feel free to ask me anything or reach out to me at [email protected]!
