About me

My name is Mithil Verma and currently, as of June-2017, I am a Junior enrolled in John P. Stevens High School in Edison, New Jersey. Not only do I have an addictive passion towards coding and computer programming but I also have an urge to somehow help the environment along with the people living in it. I was always impaled by the way so many books are wasted year after year whereas they easily be reused, helping needy people as well helping environment by not cutting many trees for printing new books. This is why, I thought of helping the cause with the idea to make BooXchg, an app that safely allows users to reuse books and as a result save trees. I know this alone cannot help the cause as all in all but with a small step in the right direction.

The process itself took me about 4 months to complete the journey and though it took much dedication, in the end it was all worth it.
