Why are you passionate about CS+SG?

Technology is one of the most powerful tools that we have widespread access to as a society. As we continue to develop its possibilities, it is important that we understand the repercussions of our actions and find a way to use tech to help create social good. I hope that CS+SG will be a start for us, as a community, to make a positive impact on the people around us and help to develop a healthier relationship with the way we use computer science for good.

Why are you passionate about CS+SG?

Self-proclaimed technologists and "startup heros" often proclaim their passion as inventing technologies to "change the world for the better". However, I firmly believe that a more useful strategy is to help existing organizations learn about and utilize freely-available technology in a manner which helps them achieve their ongoing missions. I also believe that through CS+Social Good we can help people understand how to take control of the digital tools in their lives, and in doing so move towards a world in which our devices respect our privacy, freedoms, and help us to achieve our goals.

Why are you passionate about CS+SG?

I think everyone has an obligation to use their skills and talents to make a positive impact on others, whatever that may be. A lot of organizations in the community have no idea how much more they could be accomplishing with technology, or just don't have the tools to accomplish it. Every time we empower an organization with technology, we help them as well as all the people they help through their mission, and it's a great feeling.

    Why are you passionate about CS+SG?

    I think that we, as CS majors, tend to underestimate the scope of our own influence. A lot of us have a one track mind hooked on a lucrative job market and research opportunities. We often overlook the ways in which we can impact areas outside of our bubble. I hope CS+SG creates passion in environmental science, healthcare, social justice, and more for CS students. *DAB*

    Fun facts about me!

    • I help organize HackNC. Contact me if you're interested; we're always looking for more hands & heads (& sponsors)!
    • I used to (sometimes still) do research in the CS department. If you need any advice about research opportunities, hmu.
    • My favorite season is winter. I tell myself I don't have a favorite color, but I think it's either orange or blue.
    • I like The Killers, John Mayer, Lupe Fiasco, and so much more.
    • I like to take pictures. I shoot on a Canon EOS 500D ~ Sigma 30mm f/1.4 Art ~ Canon 50mm f/1.8 STM.

    Why are you passionate about CS+SG?

    For one, I love learning about and understanding computer science. Technology is strongly shaping the human experience, and I love the idea of manipulating and applying my passion for computer science to other fields to help people out.

    Fun facts about me!

    I took a gap year and worked for the National Park Service in St. Louis. During that internship, my car got stolen twice in three days and totaled. A toy version of my car is now on my keychain.

    Why are you passionate about CS+SG?

    I firmly believe in using technology to provide equal access to living and learning, and I hope CS+SG shows members that technology and computer science can truly inspire communities in a multitude of ways, whether that be by simply raising awareness for an issue, building a platform for people to have a voice, or creating interactive robots or games for children with physical and mental impairments!

    Fun facts about me!

    • I'm one of the original co-founders and current Director of Operations of a tutoring and educational technology nonprofit located in the Bay Area, Onclass.org. Ask me about my life in California!
    • I used to have two carnivorous beta fish in the same tank (big no-no). Funnily enough, they both died peacefully.
    • Favorite things in random order: rock climbing, stargazing, headbanging to lo-fi, 60° weather, air-drumming, and eating food.
