How might we serve non-touristy content to locals in their primary locations?



This was a 4-day Hackathon team project with two other developers that took place during my TripAdvisor Internship. We realized that locals are interested in finding out about “non-touristy” activities when they are in their home cities. Building on TripAdvisor’s ready-to-be-launched Community Powered Assistant, we proposed an idea that integrates social behavior to showcase nearby and upcoming events.


TripLocal introduces a new category for TripAdvisor local users to enjoy nearby or upcoming events that they can share with friends.

Scope : 4 days, 2018
Collaborators : Prithvi Chowhan, Aakash Sethi





  • Directly worked with PMs and engineers on projects. The most exciting tasks involved the new social initiatives launched in Sept. 2018.

  • Crafted a Pattern Library that supports conversation and eliminates confusion between engineers and designers. Looked at Material Design guidelines and organized UI elements that matter to TripAdvisor.

  • Learned how to design for a global product that is responsive and adaptive to different languages.

“ I had the pleasure of managing Jennifer during her summer internship at TripAdvisor. She seamlessly integrated with the broader product design team during her first week, jumping in on projects right from the start. Throughout the summer, I was continuously impressed by Jennifer’s proactiveness to ask questions, eagerness to take on more work, and close collaboration with the design and product teams. Jennifer would be an asset to any team! ”
