Hello, I'm

Santripta Sharma

a 17-year old driven by curiosity and questionable decision-making.

About me

Hey, I'm Santripta Sharma, a high school senior at Delhi Public School Gurgaon, where I head the IT club of the school. I am passionate about game development and graphics programming. Some other fields I'm interested in are tools programming, computing, system design, visual design, sketching, psychology, philosophy, writing and political science.

I really enjoy delving into debates, maybe a little too much, since I commonly find myself caught in debates about topics I'm not familiar with.
Problem solving & puzzles are fun too, but my brain often betrays me.
