: How does it feel to have won?

Freddie Howells: Being in The Big Bang Competition Finals was the most amazing experience. It was fantastic to meet other like-minded people and talk to them about their projects. I am really excited about my upcoming trip to Arizona for Broadcomm Masters. The Big Bang has already opened so many doors for me and led to so many exciting opportunities, I can’t wait to see where it takes me next!
