A week before I attended Hack the Gender Gap, I was given the assignment to create a video/audio postcard by my videography professor at the University of Nevada, Reno. I instantly knew I wanted to document my time at my very first hackathon for the project.
I’m all about female empowerment, so it was inspiring to be a part of something that did just that.
