WHAT IS YOUR WHY?

My why is to create spaces and opportunities for people to connect, learn, and grow together. Together we can help each other see our value and potential.

HOW HAS SHPE IMPACTED YOUR LIFE?

Prior to SHPE, I didn’t feel like I had a community. With SHPE I found a supportive group of peers and mentors that have been critical to my personal and professional development growth.

HOW WILL YOU PAY IT FORWARD?

I will pay it forward by working on being a mentor for others and promote STEM awareness to the younger generation.
