She Hacks Boston, because I love encouraging environments for exploration.
"Create a community of inclusivity within the tech industry"

The mission of SheHacks Boston is to empower women and femme non-binary individuals in computer science to achieve; provide them with opportunities to explore the tech industry in an inspiring, encouraging, and energizing environment; and create a community of inclusivity within the Boston tech industry.

Our team met at the event and consisted of: Tram Nguyen, a Computer Science major at Boston College, Ekta Sirwani and Rachel Prendergass, computer scientists from Northeastern University and Alima Nurlan, an engineer from overseas (Turkey) and myself.
