BBC 100 Women: TV Documentary
Mountain View, California, October 2017
In September I was nominated by the BBC to represent the growing field of Women in STEM in Silicon Valley. Filming for the internationally broadcasted show lasted 5 days in Alphabet's Playground Global headquarters. The show followed a team of five women, all STEM advocates, who teamed up to address gender inequality in the field. 
During the project, I worked with a team of engineers and marketing professionals to create a wearable device that connected and empowered women across diverse professional fields. The 5-day "hackathon" allowed me to sketch, 3D model, 3D print, render, and create a final wearable prototype of the device.
