“Sip and Safe”
- Product Development,
- UX/UI Design
- Public Safety
About this Project:
Over 32 people die due to drunk driving everyday.
An app was designed to reduce the number of people dying from drunk driving.
This is an app that is like the Uber app but geared towards people that go out and drink.
How the app works:
When you start drinking you will press a button for a timer that will give you the amount of time you are allowed to drink. When your timer goes off the app calls you a taxi. If the bartender is connected to the Sip and Safe app, he/she will be notified to stop serving you. They will then record the amount of drinks you had, what you were drinking and close out your bill.
Driver will assist the customer and he/she will give them water if needed. They will also notify an emergency contact (if applicable) that the customer is home safe and sound. If they chose to get checked up on, they will be able to text the driver, but they will only have limited options to talk due to privacy reasons. In these slides you will go through the experience of a user, driver and bartender.

Types of work that I do
What I do all day at work?
I facilitate mindset changes and cultural impacts to enable digital transformation, as well as the development of new digital businesses and solutions HP worldwide.
I possess and have honed several skills: I'm a good listener, sociable, flexible, positive, hard-working, friendly, disciplined, inspiring, and adept at simplifying complex issues. However, it's the people and the ecosystem surrounding me that truly drive my continual learning and growth.
As a co-founder of a mobile applications startup, I've learned that being an owner means working 24/7. It also means taking charge of tasks that aren't always enjoyable. Most importantly, I've learned that business success hinges on the confidence of your customers in your actions, reputation, and care. The product or service you're selling comes last on that list. Patience, embracing failure, and knowing when to stop can also pave the way to success. Limitations only exist in your mind.
I was born in Madrid, Spain, and half of my heart remains there. The other half is scattered across numerous places and cultures, a testament to my experiences as a traveler, a student, and a worker.
Types of work that I do
Data Projects, IT & Cybersecurity, Product Development
I am passionate about doing work that relates to
Culture/Heritage, Digital Citizenship, Education/Schools
The best piece of career advice I've ever received
People and their mindsets drive everyday evolution. If you consistently do your best, you will always be at peace with yourself and your community.
You are change-makers, and society is going to thank you for addressing a global social issue using digital tools, apps, and community-building initiatives. By identifying a social problem in our community and designing an app to address it, you are showcasing a model for digital problem-solving solutions.
As of now, you function as a team! I encourage you to further develop your app prototype, from its design to coding, and to test how a real app would function. MIT provides an excellent resource, the App Inventor (https://appinventor.mit.edu/), which could be highly beneficial for first-time app developers. I encourage you to explore it and continue growing both as a team and as innovators in digital solutions.
I love the messages in the app: 'Please remember to treat our drivers with respect' and 'Please remember to treat your passenger good no matter what!!' 💙
Furthermore, I recommend you watch some pitch videos on YouTube to hone your pitching skills. Remember, your pitch is the powerful tool for branding and marketing your solution. For reference, consider the following pitch structure:
The Hook (10 seconds)
Introduce the Problem (30 seconds)
Problem In-depth (1 minute)
Your Technology (1 minute)
Feedback and Future (1 minute)
Wrap-up (30 seconds).
Lastly, I'd like to extend my heartfelt congratulations once again. Be proud of being the creators of 'Sip and Safe'! Thanks! Keep up the excellent work and continue shaping the future. Your creativity and drive are truly inspiring.👏🏼👏🏼📲
Feedback from the Community:
