I love to


My name is Vaishnavi Nandakumar and I’m a software engineer working towards creating an impact in tech.
I graduated from Vellore Institue of Technology in 2022 with a degree in Computer Science and I’m currently working as an SDE at Visa, Bangalore
Consistency and determination have always been the principles I’ve stood by in the process of achieving my goals and this approach is what had eventually opened up opportunities for me to learn and work in the field of data analytics, web development, AI and technical content writing. Apart from my technical interests, I'm also an avid reader, orator and an occasional blogger. You can check out my book reviews on Goodreads and I’d love it if you drop by my personal blog too!
