“Fourth of July 2014 weekend, my family and I drove from Texas to New Orleans so I could compete in the YESWECODE QeynoLabs Hackathon. My team went on to win the greatest global impact award for designing and developing an anti human trafficking app called S.T.O.P. – Sex Trafficking Operations Prevention. I helped develop the app as a Junior Software Engineer. Due to my efforts, my congressman presented me with a Congressional Recognition letter at his Human Trafficking Summit in Sugar Land. Brooks Brothers representative, Lynn, at the Houston Galleria location helped me to select the perfect suit, shirt and tie, as well as, get it custom fitted within 48 hours. It was delivered to perfection.”
