I have a passion for creative problem solving and enjoy hands-on prototyping and fabrication. Throughout my collegiate career, I have sought out unique working environments to learn more about the various career paths within engineering such as entrepreneurship, academic research, and mass-manufactured product development.
My aim as an engineer is to promote female involvement in STEM fields. I have worked to achieve this throughout my high school and collegiate careers by participating in outreach programs and gaining leadership roles in relevant extracurriculars. For instance, I was the first female captain of my high school’s FIRST Robotics Team and used this position to encourage more girls to join the team. Throughout my years at Cooper Union, I was an active board member of Cooper Union’s Society of Women Engineers (SWE) chapter and served as President during my junior year. As President of Cooper SWE, I launched a new series of events called “Let’s Talk,” where students and faculty have the space to discuss diversity and the experience of women engineering students at Cooper Union. “Let’s Talk” has become one of the most important and popular SWE events on campus, and allows students to feel safe and welcome.
