I was the co-founder and vice president of UMW’s Linux Users Group. I mainly brought interesting people to come and talk about Linux and open source.
Cybersecurity - Capture the Flag
Capture the Flag (CTF) is a competition in where teams try to find flags by doing different types of cybersecurity type problems. This can include using the wayback machine, breaking a simple cryptosystem, as well as finding exploits in a sandboxed system.
I was part of a committee of four people making problems for UMW’s first CTF competition.

In the summer of 2018, I attended the month Datakind events in DC. In it, I mostly performed data cleaning and verification for non-profit organizations in the area.
