Founder and President
Annika is a senior at Palo Alto High School. She became interested in Computer Programming in third grade when her teacher introduced her to Tynker, a visual programming platform. In middle school, she created Occulus Patch Assistant, a product that helps to simplify and improve Amblyopia treatment using a smart sensor and a smartphone application. Her nine-year struggle with Amblyopia pushed her to search for better ways to treat and manage this vision problem. Annika is Co-President of the Girls in the AI club and the Paly Chamber Musicians club in her school. She was also part of TEAM(Tests of Engineering Aptitude, Mathematics, and Science) clubs in her high school and qualified for Nationals in April 2019. She participates in science fairs and has qualified for CSSF and Broadcom Masters Top 30. She has taught computer programming to kids through free coding workshops at various libraries in the Bay Area. Annika plays violin with the Palo Alto Chamber Orchestra in their Senior group. In her spare time, Annika enjoys reading, busking with friends, and listening to music.
