AIHacks: Southern California's first all-female high school hackathon

I oversee the organization as a whole: handling event logistics, securing partnerships, etc.

At our hackathons, it inspires me to see so many girls learning and networking in a empowering environment.

Typically, my day consists of meetings with various teams in my organization. For example, if we have a big social media campaign coming up, I'll spend a lot of time coordinating with our Marketing Team. If our event is coming up in a few weeks, I'll follow up with our Operations Team and ensure all the details are sorted out.

I've been programming since elementary school! In my formal computer science classes, I realized that there were very few female peers, and I wanted to change that.

I'm currently working towards a Bachelor's degree in Computer Science!

I love photography, reading science fiction novels, and getting boba with my friends.
