Aashni Shah

Hey! I'm a Software Engineer at Microsoft, and studied Computer Science at the University of Toronto. I'm originally from Kenya, but moved to Toronto for University and am now in Vancouver for work. I was an active member in both UofT and the Toronto tech scene. A former Computer Science Student Union president, a member of the Undergraduate Women in Computer Science group, and an organizer for various events in Toronto and am looking for great events to attend in Vancouver. I've also spoken at conferences highlighting hackathons and Women’s Empowerment. Aashni founded the first Collegiate hackathon in Canada, UofTHacks, and has since enjoyed watching hackathons evolve and grow. I enjoy writing about my experiences at different tech events, and have interned at companies in Jakarta, Nairobi, Seattle and Toronto. I love photography, and have been sharing photos through #project365 on Instagram. Feel free to reach out!
