Hi, I'm Emily from MLH HQ! πŸ‘©β€πŸ’»

Hi everyone!

My name is Emily and I am a Localhost Community Coordinator. I’m very excited to be joining this incredible community. I grew up in Brooklyn, NY and recently graduated from Penn State University where I studied Acting, Entrepreneurship, and French. I am now happily settled back in this amazing city and working at MLH HQ.

I was first introduced to the world of hacking through my brother who is an avid coder and participated in various HackNY and MLH Hackathons during his time at university. I have been fortunate enough to see into this world of possibilities through him and through my time at Penn State where I worked with the entrepreneurship club.

My experience with organizing stems from the world of entrepreneurship where I organized meetups, pitch competitions, and conferences for Next Gen HQ, a company that seeks to empower the next generation of entrepreneurs.

For me, there is nothing more rewarding than helping someone find their people and a sense of belonging which is made possible by communities such as Major League Hacking. I could not be more excited to be making this transition into the world of hacking and supporting hackers worldwide.

Happy Hacking!

Emily
