I plan on obtaining a civil engineering degree, followed by an MBA. I’m currently looking at universities in Florida and hope to intern at NASA. In preparation for college I’ve been taking the Engineering Project Lead the Way courses, as well as several AP courses, acquiring 9 college credits for RIT. I recently planned a girl’s empowerment event at CVHS with 5 influential women speakers. I too hope to someday be a female leader and role model to inspire other young women to enter STEM fields.
