Nikki Singh

As a kid I always enjoyed the experiments in Physics building circuits and working with Integrated Circuits. It fascinated me that such small devices could have a profound impact on communication, computing, and information. I became an inspired student of Electronics and Computer Engineering with experience in object-oriented programming, prototype design, developing algorithms and a passion for embedded design. My hobbies include dancing, singing and traveling. I am always seeking to experience different cultures, values and be a part of something exciting and inspiring. I am really stoked to be a part of ChickTech and share a similar passion and excitement for technology with the girls.
