Hi, I'm Ashni.

I'm a software engineer, born and raised in Nairobi, Kenya, studying in the United States.
I am passionate about working on meaningful projects and empowering people through technology.

I recently graduated from Boston University in May 2020, majoring in Computer Science with a minor in Business Administration & Management. While at BU, I worked as a software engineer intern at the Software & Application Innovation Lab, and led the BizTech student club as the Director of Operations, helping students explore opportunities in the intersection of business and technology.

If you have any questions, anything from studying in the United States, to starting out your career/education in computer science, feel free to reach out! I’ve been in your shoes, and I’m always happy to help!

I am also currently searching for full-time software engineering roles in the United States or United Kingdom so let me know if you or your company are hiring!
