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.
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!
