Interview with Bani Singh

By February 28, 2019 91 Comments

The second in a series of interviews in partnership with JUV Consulting, Overachiever Magazine got the chance to sit down and talk with JUV Consulting’s CTO, Bani Singh.

 

  1. What do you consider to be your biggest achievement?

    I think my biggest achievement is learning how to focus. When you’re in high school, you’re sometimes overwhelmed by opportunities. You want to do everything, and end up not doing your best. Right now, I have three or four things I’m giving my full, undivided attention to: focus makes for a fuller life.

  2. What does a CTO do?

    A CTO (Chief Technology Officer) basically leads all technology related projects at a company. I lead a team of software engineers, and work on issues. An example of one thing I’m doing right now: making a code less slow.

  3. What has your general experience as an Asian women in tech been like?

    Honestly, it’s been pretty great! I’ve been lucky to find lots of people who encourage me.

  4. Have you ever personally experienced discrimination?

    I have, thought not often, as both a woman and an immigrant who grew up in Norway. I don’t have any hard feelings towards anyone, but do recognize the negative impact it can have on people long term.

  5. How do you stay in touch with your heritage?

    I grew up in Norway, visited India a lot, lived in South Korea for four months, and now live in San Francisco, so I have more of a worldview, but there are parts of my heritage that I have held on to that have really shaped me. For example, humility, respect for religion (both others and my own), and a deep appreciation of elders.

  6. What are some of your day-to-day duties at JUV Consulting?

    Making sure the code works! But other than that, checking up on my team, and generally seeing that everything runs smoothly.

  7. Who inspires you?

    My parents, and my sister. They have the classic immigrant story: they moved to Norway from India, and really built their whole lives there. I look up to my parents more than anything for allowing me and my sister to have countless opportunities.

  8. What advice do you have for Asian women looking to pursue a career in tech?

    Go in with an open mind, ask questions, be fierce at the decision-making table, and reach out to people/mentors for advice and questions (including me). I’d be happy to help any time.

  9. What is your go-to coffee order?I don’t really drink much coffee! I love matcha lattes, chai lattes, and boba tea, though.
  10. What do you consider the biggest problem facing Asian women today to be?

    I think a failure to realize potential holds many girls back. Women I know are more hesitant to believing that they are good enough. And that’s a problem.

Bani Singh is  19-year-old Computer Science major and Chief Technology Officer at JUV Consulting. Bani is passionate about turning ideas into reality. At the age of 18, she co-developed EtherCup, a FIFA 2018 Football World Cup collectible built on Ethereum’s blockchain, which received a grant from the 1517 Fund.

  • W88Thai says:

    Thanks for your suggestions. One thing I have noticed is banks and also financial institutions understand the spending behavior of consumers and also understand that most people max out their credit cards around the holidays. They wisely take advantage of this specific fact and commence flooding your inbox and snail-mail box having hundreds of 0 APR card offers immediately after the holiday season concludes. Knowing that when you are like 98% of all American public, you’ll leap at the possible opportunity to consolidate card debt and shift balances to 0 interest rate credit cards.

It would seem to me that your comments are actually not completely validated and in fact you are generally your self not really thoroughly convinced of the argument. In any case I did enjoy looking at it.

  • One other issue is when you are in a circumstances where you would not have a cosigner then you may really need to try to exhaust all of your educational funding options. You could find many funds and other scholarship grants that will give you money to assist with college expenses. Thanks alot : ) for the post.

  • SLR says:

The 90 credit education meets the other bachelor college degree requirements and once you earn the associate of arts in BA online, you may have access to up to date technologies in this field. Some reasons why students have to get their associate degree in business is because they can be interested in this area and want to get the general schooling necessary prior to jumping right bachelor college diploma program. Many thanks for the tips you really provide inside your blog.

  • Thanks for these guidelines. One thing I should also believe is that credit cards presenting a 0% rate of interest often bait consumers along with zero monthly interest, instant authorization and easy on the web balance transfers, nonetheless beware of the number one factor that will probably void your own 0% easy street annual percentage rate and also throw anybody out into the bad house fast.

    I’ve learned several important things by means of your post. I’d also like to convey that there will be a situation in which you will make application for a loan and never need a cosigner such as a National Student Aid Loan. But if you are getting that loan through a conventional bank or investment company then you need to be willing to have a co-signer ready to allow you to. The lenders may base their decision using a few components but the biggest will be your credit standing. There are some loan merchants that will as well look at your work history and choose based on that but in almost all cases it will hinge on your report.
