“I was really inspired by the event and want to now follow a career in coding and cyber prevention. It expertly demonstrated both the dangers of ethical and non-ethical hacking, but also the potential to do good in this world. The visitors weren’t intimidating and never shamed us based on our answers. They were all very friendly and inspiring!”
