When the Computer Science Society first started and the first e-board was instantiated, I did not realize how amazing the people on this e-board would be. Our hackathon Head of Finance organizer, An, has been a great asset in our club and in planning our hackathon. Without her, I do not believe that we could have gotten as far as we have and I figured we should all get to know how great An is.
Why did you decide to get involved with the CSS club?
I wanted to get involved with the Computer Science Society because the school does have enough women representing Computer Science and the field. I also want to spread the theme that Computer Science is relevant field and should be recognized.
Why did you decide to run for treasurer?
I decided because if I did get elected it would be my first time on an e-board and I knew I could contribute because I am experienced with a lot of software such as excel. I also wanted to see what it was like to be on the e-board of a club.
What did you want this club to become when you came on as treasurer?
I wanted our club to branch out to other schools like SWE or Nesbe. Especially with the hackathon coming up, I want it to become a yearly thing.
Are you satisfied with the direction the club is going into?
As of right now I happy because we have about a 20 active members and we are working hard to grow our membership. Once hackathon happens, I hope that this brings the club more publicity and we can become even bigger.
What are some of your interests outside of CSS?
Outside of CSS, I like to go on walks, listening to music, watching movies and I hope to start working on separate projects. Some of those include website ideas and a phone app. I also plan on going to more hackathons this year.
Why did you decide to become an organizer in the hackathon?
When I came to Wentworth, I was really surprised to find out that Wentworth had not held any hackathons. I figured I would be the first one to do it.
What’s your favorite part about planning the hackathon?
Mainly it’s meeting new people. As an introverted person, I wanted to reach out and become more open.
