In collaboration with Cam Sight, I hosted a  Technology Bootcamp at Microsoft Research Cambridge. I wanted to inspire young people with visual impairment to become active imaginers of how technology could shape their experience of the world, standing in contrast to being passive recipients of assistive technologies. Held at Microsoft Research Cambridge in August 2014, it was attended by 11 young people with visual impairment and their siblings between 6 and 16 years old.

I organized a programme to train female PhD students in public communication. These women gave workshops in schools with the aim of inspiring the next generation of women. The project won funding from the Community Action Fund and was the basis on which I won the Student Volunteering Gold Award, a national honour.
