About Photo

Hi, I’m Kamyar Salahi, a high school programmer from Los Angeles.

I’m a senior at La Canada High School, but my programming experience goes back seven years, when I first began developing 3D and 2D games to document my elementary school experience. I’ve been fascinated by EECS since childhood, often building my own circuits, hacking into various gadgets, and programming applications for mathematical computation as well as personal use.

Throughout my highschool career, I have worked to promote the use of technology within my community as well as develop real-life practical experience. For most of my high school, I've led the LCHS Hack Club, which is involved hackathon preparation and coding projects. Our club is currently working to start Hackademia, SoCal's First High School Hackathon. Over the summer, I helped develop a summer camp for students to develop a mobile app focused on using technology to improve the high school experience. I have also interned at UCLA’s I2BL and worked with MIT on Project Selene and KitCube.
