This summer, we are featuring guest posts by some of our Class of 2015 hackNY Fellows. So far, we’ve heard from Kim and Keeyon about their impressions of the Fellowship’s first half, and fallen in love with NYC all over again with Chris. Here, Shloka brings us into a whole new medium with an audio piece! This week, we’ll also feature Fellow posts about working at two great startups, and one thing that makes hackNY special.

Shloka is a grad student at Columbia doing a dual Master’s in Computer Science and Journalism. She applied the skills she’s learned in school, as well as some of her own unique talents, to create this audio piece introducing you to the life of a hackNY Fellow.
