Now a computer science major at the University of Maryland, Baltimore County (UMBC), I had the opportunity to participate in the Exelon Foundation STEM Academy back in 2021. Ever since then this program has been an incredible experience for me, as I have been able to connect with like-minded women in my field and gain valuable insights into the industry. Through attending workshops and networking events, whether on zoom or in person. I have been able to learn and build relationships with professionals in the field.
Furthermore, I am also a member of the Honors College at UMBC, which has provided me with even more opportunities for growth and development. This program has challenged me to think critically and has provided me with a diverse range of experiences that have helped me to become a more well-rounded individual.
