Sofia Little

Sofia is a senior at Gunn and enjoys eating cucumber sushi, although has expanded her palette to garlic bread. Her favorite projects often include lots of woodworking, but end up taking a lot of time to complete as she is also very good at procrastinating. Outside of MakeX she enjoys building sets for theater productions, and drinking boba.

Noah Milivojevic

Nicholas Mo

I’m Nicholas, a senior at PALY whose hobbies include design and fashion. At MakeX, my favorite tool would definitely be the laser cutter. I love functional design, so most of my personal projects are aimed to improve quality of life, such as a watch stand, and desk organization.

Aditi Jain

Aditi is a Junior at Gunn and enjoys anything to do with Taylor Swift. She enjoys programming, working with electronics, building Pokémon themed model rockets, and reading terrible books that people recommend to her. Outside of MakeX, she enjoys playing soccer and playing the ukulele.
