Hi! I’m Aneekah Uddin, the Associate Producer for the Mind the Ceiling Podcast. I’m originally from Montclair, NJ and currently am studying Computer Science at Princeton University. In the past, I’ve been involved in groups that promote women’s empowerment through tech (Girls Who Code, TechGirls) and continue to advocate for diversity in any space that I’m a part of, whether that’s a Business, theater, or tech group on or off campus. I am driven by all the wonderful different stories of the people I meet, and I can’t wait to hear yours– maybe on our pod!
