Hello, I'm Tala Buwadi

I creatively solve problems with code.

I'm in my third year of an Honours Specialization in Computer Science.

About Me

My name is Tala and I’m in third year at the University of Western Ontario in Canada. I am completing an Honours Specialization in Computer Science and a minor in Software Engineering. I’m currently an Events Director at the Women in Tech Society (WITS) where I am helping to encourage and support Women in STEM, and a developer on the Ivey Fintech Innovation Team where I’m helping to develop a full stack webapp for a London Charity called Community Living London. This summer, I’ll be a developer intern at RBC Amplify, which is an intensive 4 month innovation program at the largest bank in Canada!

In my free time, I make tech content on TikTok to share with my community of over 61k friends. I also like to cook, sew, and crochet – basically anything that allows me to be creative! I love listening to music and some cool people I’ve seen perform live are Demi Lovato, Jason Derulo, Hedley, the Jonas Brothers and Michael Bublé.

I’m currently seeking 4 to 12 month Fall 2021 internships in PM or software development roles.

Hackathon Wins

1 / 2
🏆 Best Use of Domain.com
bearable 9to5

A work from home companion that increases the wellbeing of those who have #zoomfatigue caused by the overload of video call meetings. Using python, pyvirtualcam and OpenCV, we integrated a virtual camera that can run on any video calling platform. We used multithreading in combination with OpenCV to process video frame data, and allow asynchronous control of the virtual camera while providing a user interface at the same time.

Hack Western 7
🏆 Third Place
Igloo Connect

Our #hack was IglooConnect, a webapp that presents immigrants looking to enter Canada with a series of prompts pertaining to what they value in a community such as amenities, languages spoken, and job opportunities, and then connects them to a community in Canada that they can call home!
