National Role Model Directory
Someone was looking for my IEEE page and found this unexpected listing instead. They sent it to me this morning after they found my email. Huge surprise! A national role model! How cool is that? I'm not sure I deserve the title, but I do hope I can help more kids go into STEM.
National College Honor Society
I have been invited into the Alpha Chi National College Honor Society, reserved for the top 10% of college juniors, seniors, and graduate students! I am so happy! Words escape me.
Several students from my university got to attend a tech conference in Illinois this weekend, and I am so glad I was among the lucky attendees! There is so much to learn at professional conferences, from the latest innovations to new uses for existing tech. I met several brilliant people including professionals, professors, and graduate students who are working on fascinating projects. Even the food choices were eye-opening! I'm actively searching for more opportunities that will allow me to network with - and learn from - more people in my industry, so I'm hoping to attend a lot more conferences in the future. I can't thank my university enough for their generosity! It was a fun, educational weekend!
