Hacker culture has changed my outlook on life.

What will the future hold for me? Where is my life headed?

Thoughts like these were constantly flooding my mind last summer. I was happy with a majority of my life (especially my relationships), but I lived aimlessly, and during those moments I often questioned my purpose. I became increasingly worried, and it led to unneeded stress, as well as a decreased effort in schooling. That’s when I decided to make a change.


Miami. 24 hours. No sleep. Just code and creation.

Sounds awesome right? Well it was. The first hackathon I ever went to was a surreal experience. It wasn’t the best thrown hackathon in the world, but it ended my hackathon virginity and it holds a special place in my heart for that. It was 24 hours of coding, bonding, and most of all, producing.
