Last weekend I attended my first ever hackathon, IC Hack 19! It was a truly incredible experience, thanks to my teammates, the excellent organisers and generous sponsors. We had so much fun building ParaPhrase, a mobile app for paramedics that summarises everything that happens from when they first reach the scene until they reach the hospital, where they can quickly handover a full breakdown of events.

As this was our first hackathon, we didn't set our expectations too high in terms of the end product, so we were thrilled that our app worked by the end of the 24 hours. To be nominated as a finalist was something else, and winning the award for Best Newcomer's Hack was out of this world. Furthermore, technology in medicine and healthcare is something I'm really passionate about, so to win with this idea made it even more surreal.
