WHRO Public Media2017 - PresentGCC Volunteer (Monitor)
I volunteered to help during the 32nd annual Great Computer Challenge, organized by WHRO and held at Old Dominion University. I competed in this event twice during high school and felt compelled to make it as fun and special as others did for me. I monitored several teams of high school students competing in tech related challenges.
- Kept time during the event
- relayed questions from the students to judges
- Made sure teams were following the rules of the competition
- helped with registration at the start of the event

Students in middle and high school were the participants of the event. I volunteered to help take measurements during one of the challenges, which was used in determining the scores for said activity. The event was sponsored by TOPS, Cape Henry, and Busch Gardens.

Old Dominion University2016 - 2016Volunteer, Club Representative
I represented the Old Dominion University (ODU) Association for Computing Machinery (ACM) by manning a table with information about the benefits of joining, and handing out free stuff. I spoke with many parents and upcoming freshmen about the program to help figure out if computer science was the right path. During the CS department presentation for the parents and students, I gave a short presentation on joining the club and participating in ODU's CS dept. The children were ages 7-10 and inspiring. Their comfort with the technology and ability to pick up basic programming concepts(Loops were hard but they figured it out) gets me excited for what the future holds.
Code.org2015 - PresentVolunteer
The Hour of Code is a one-hour introduction to computer science, designed to demystify code and show that anybody can learn the basics. I was asked by many teachers to come volunteer with their class. That alone is fantastic, that so many teachers were interested in having computer science basics introduced to their students. Unfortunately, this lovely time of year lined up perfectly with finals so I didn't have the time to volunteer for all of them.
- Volunteered at 2 visits to John B. Dey Elementary.
- Tallwood Elementary (Where, as a kid, I went from K-2!)
