“In the summer of 2018 I attended Tech Under Twenty Hired, and ended up connecting with the founder of a local mobile startup, Kidictive. I got hired to develop mobile video games for them that summer, and it was one of the most influential experiences in high school. It gave me integral work and interview experience I still use to this day.”

“I enjoyed how this event gave me the chance to learn and grow. Additionally, I enjoyed learning how to best pitch yourself and how to convey your experiences. Also all the mentors had so much experience. All seemed very young (that’s a great thing!). Since we’re young we can relate to them really easily”
