Getting involved: Sarah Robertson

Impact48 weekends bring in a wide range of people. Although each weekend will require some sort of specialised skill set depending on what the charity involved is aiming for, there is always room for people from different backgrounds. Sarah Robertson (no relation to team member Alex Robertson!)  is coming in with creative design and project management skills to help whip our team of techies into shape and keep them on track!  Why does she want to be involved? Read on to find out.

Why do you want to be involved in Impact48? 

Working on a meaningful project that supports a great cause appeals to me. I also like a challenge. Concept to completion within 48 hours is no mean feat!

What do you perceive your role to be over the weekend and what are you hoping to bring to the challenge?

I’m hoping to bring an eye for detail and a head for research to the team.

What are you expecting?

A fun and collaborative time. Making a valuable contribution is just the start!

What do you hope to gain from the weekend?

A few friends, a few laughs and a few more pounds.

Any other fun facts you think would be interesting and helpful!

I put my research skills to good use today. The first ever Hackathon took place 15 years ago.

Only two days left until our first hack challenge weekend! Stay tuned for final team members and the ups and downs of the weekend. Follow on Twitter and Facebook for live action!
