Team Interactive (T/I) athletes like myself are given a rewarding opportunity to challenge themselves physically while serving as role models for underserved students who hope to pursue a career in technology.
All funds raised through the Five Boro Bike Tour are used to support the academic success of underserved high school students in NYC.
Being someone who grew up interested in technology, but having no computer science programs, it was difficult to catch up when I started studying computer science in college. Still less than 1/10 schools have any sort of program like this, and many underserved students never get a chance at a career in technology. There is a huge demand in this field and a lot of positive impact that can be made through technology. That is why I'm riding for Team Interactive!
