Project: A website to help people save their cents to travel.
Brief: I participated in a Small Business Hackathon, and my cross-functional team researched, designed, and built a React front-end prototype to help small businesses in the hospitality sector.
Background: Over three days, our team (data scientist, user experience designers, and developers) came up with an idea and built a prototype that helps users save travel money to spend with small, local, hospitality businesses impacted by the pandemic. Ultimately, we wanted an application that could identify when users were on a check-out page of popular e-commerce sites. Our application would ask users if they would like to round up their cents and save it to their Travel Cents account. I focused on building the React front end, which is displayed at the links above.
Status: Our team came in 2nd in the hospitality sector! We are now working together on a seperate but related project to help struggling music venues.
