Meet Annissa Mu — a rising senior majoring in Computer Science and Environmental Studies at Wellesley College, MA. She joined Cadent as a Frontend Engineer Intern in the 2023 Summer Intern class and assisted in creating user interface (UI) components. In the future, she mentioned she’d love to get more experience in backend engineering and pursue a career path in full-stack development. Outside of work she enjoys dancing, playing video games, and crocheting. Recently, we sat down with Annissa to learn more about her and her experience as an intern at Cadent.  

Tell us a fun fact about yourself. 

I’ve been a competitive tennis player since I was 12 years old and I’m now captain of the Wellesley College Women’s Varsity Tennis Team. 

Where can we find you if you’re not at work or school? 

You can find me training on the tennis court or practicing in the dance studio. 

What was your favorite project you worked on during your internship and why? 

During my internship, I created a proof of concept for a timeline UI component in Aperture Platform. The purpose of the timeline is to give users a better visualization of their traffic instructions within their ad campaign. I enjoyed working on this project because the feature could be implemented and positively impact many users. It was also the perfect project scale where I felt both accomplished and challenged! 

What is one thing you wish you would have known prior to joining Cadent? 

I wish I knew more about source control since I’ve actually never had to do a collaborative project that required me to create branches, do merges, and pull requests. It would have saved me a lot of hassle. 

What advice would you give to an incoming intern at Cadent? 

When you start your internship, you’re going to feel overwhelmed and feel like you don’t know what you’re doing. Don’t panic, trust your own ability to learn, and ask questions! Managers don’t expect you to be an expert at your job right away, so don’t be worried if there’s something you don’t know.
