How can I avoid using I repetitively in a resume/about me, should it be avoided or is it to be expected in that kind of writing? Are there any substitutes that can be used in place of it, or should the structure of sentences be modified altogether?
--EDIT-- This question is different than others on overusing I because it specifically refers to a resume/about me writing format.
Speaking as a former division manager of a public company that has hired dozens of programmers and engineers and read hundreds of resumes:
Use "I". It is expected. Stick to the facts, do not engage in puffery, but do not be afraid to note very positive results; either (as you have).
Do not be so stilted in your language. I would not use the word "utilize", "use" is sufficient. "Currently" is not necessary either.
Currently I am looking for internship opportunities that can utilize my existing programming skills and allow me to expand them further.

I would not mention any other hobbies unless they directly relate to your technical skills. None of yours do (not even modding phones, which suggests you are a hacker).
My long term goal is a career in Web/Android development.
Thank you for your consideration, my contact information is on my resume, and below:
Most résumés seem to solve this issue by creating bullet points and starting each bullet point with the verb.
Modern thinking on the use of pronouns ('I') in resumes is that they should be avoided. The reason for this is simple - anyone who reads it already knows that the information is about you.
The standard approach is to start each sentence or, more commonly, bullet point with an action verb. This method leads you towards sentences like these:
If you want more help on choosing suitable action verbs then this cheat sheet is pretty good: List of Action Verbs for Resumes & Professional Profiles, but other lists exist, so look around.
Good luck with your career.
