Hi, my name is Adi Thummisi. I’m a high school student from the Bay Area. I’ve been passionate about cars and gaming my whole life. During quarantine, I wanted to learn more about my passion but couldn’t find anywhere to do so. This led me to the idea of creating a platform that lets people learn more about their interests and meet people with similar interests, coined Palsdoor. Palsdoor also allows users to access special features within each community. The reason why I think Palsdoor is different from its competitors is that it gives users the ability to meet new people and learn something new every time they visit, avoiding my dilemma during the quarantine.
