Kristina is a student in the Dev Degree program at Carleton University. She is studying to get a CS degree while working part-time at Shopify. At Shopify, she is going through a learning and placement path to get experience working with a range of technology. She also works at Activeloop—an open-source dataset format for data-centric computer vision workflows— in a Developer Relations role. Outside of school and work, Kristina volunteers at Technovation by being a speaker and coach. She became interested in tech because someone encouraged her to try it out. She is hoping this podcast can spark people's curiosity for fields they have never known about and encourage them to explore!
The Curiosity podcast was made by two teenagers Naila Moloo and Kristina Arezina who realized that, a lot of the time, the potential and talent of young people goes undiscovered until later on in life. Their goal is to help people discover what they want to do and how to do it earlier on in life by exposing them to exponential technologies, mindsets, and frameworks.
