Nami Jaya

Meet Nami Jaya!

My name is Nami Jaya, and I attend Anoka Ramsey Community College in Coon Rapids, Minnesota. My planned graduation date is May 2027 with a degree in Astronomy and Astrophysics. I made this website as a portfolio of my accomplishments and skills in developing websites.

On my free time I enjoy traveling, painting, trying new recipes, and hanging out with my friends. When the weather gets nice, you will see me outside either gardening or riding my bike. Every summer, I grow sunflowers in my backyard and watch it grow tall!

Fun Fact: My dream destination is Brazil!
