My TAG-Ed experience: I interned last summer at the Coca-Cola Company. I was in charge of developing new touch-to-pay features on vending machines, which would allow users with devices equipped with NFC to make a transaction effortlessly. Additionally, I designed a prototype of the Coca-Cola App Exchange, a webpage that was supposed to store internal applications for the company so they could be reused more easily.
What I’m doing now: I am doing research in robotics and collective behavior algorithms at Princeton.
Future plans: This internship gave me experience at a large company, and it helped me understand that they are not for me. It helped me realize I want to be an entrepreneur.
Work/Volunteer experiences shaped by my internship: None so far, but I am sure it will in the near future.
