Ashmi is 10 years old and hails from India. She currently lives in Singapore, studying in Naval Base Primary School. She likes acting and her CCA is a Drama club, but she also likes basketball and playing with her friends every day. Her favourite colour is yellow as it is a bright colour that represents happiness. She wants to become an actress or a programmer when she grows up. Her motto in life is to keep on trying because only those who don’t give up will reach the end and win.

The Project

Playtok is an app that allows children to interact with
animated animals - either through video calls or to play a
game with them - to have fun and decrease their boredom. The app is mainly targeted at children from ages 2 to 5. There are several characters - Frosty loves science so you can test out chemical substances with him; Chucky loves mathematics so you can practice mathematics with her, and Giga does not love school so she teaches you the importance of play. I hope to customise my project further and create different levels to it and I’m really excited to work on it more. I love coding! I really hope you can have fun with my friends!
