I decided created a video about the importance of encouraging Black kids to pursue careers in STEM. In my video, I talk about how there is a lack of representation of Black people in STEM, which in turns causes Black children to think that the profession isn’t made for them. It’s important to me to be the best role model I can to motivate Black kids to see themselves in a science profession.
Hello my fellow blog readers! It’s been a while since I’ve written a post because the senior life has been keeping me so busy! Now that I’ve gotten adjusted to my schedule, I can take the time to catch you all up on what’s been going on with my life.
Believe it or not, one of my favorite things about being a WashU student is my housing! The dual-degree program has this awesome setup with Quadrangle housing, where some apartments are reserved specifically for dual degree engineering students. Since Quadrangle is owned by WashU, there are housing options even available for students who are not […]
Living in St. Louis is really fun. There are many things to do, especially when it’s a beautiful day outside. Forest Park has a free Zoo, museums, golf courses, and more. There is also Six Flags, which is located a little over half an hour away. Yes, everything I listed are activities one does in […]
WashU has been nothing short of a home for me thus far. Even though we’re in a global pandemic right now, I’ve still felt close to my school. I stated in some of my earlier posts that I am a dual-degree engineering student. Quick refresher: the dual-degree engineering program is structured such that a student […]
In my last post, I talked about how amazing the rec center is here at WashU. It’s so amazing that here I am, writing another post about what it has to offer! I touched a little bit on the two studios at the rec and how they are my favorite spots to go to. However, […]
It’s not a lie that college is often extremely stressful for students, especially if you’re taking roughly 15-20 credit hours along with juggling extracurricular activities. As I stated in some of my other posts, I am a 3-2 dual-degree engineering student. In other words, I am completing my Chemical Engineering degree in only 2 years. […]
Some would say one of the worst times during college is the week of final exams. I would be the one to say it is actually THE worst time during the semester. The whole idea behind cramming a semester’s worth of material for 5 different classes in one week, all to pass an exam that’s […]
My favorite time of the year most definitely has to be in between Thanksgiving and New years. This may be a common thing a lot of people say, however I don’t mind agreeing! I love this time of the year so much because of all the joy and happiness that is spread from one another. […]
What are the holidays without treats? This time of year is my favorite for many reasons. One being all the yummy desserts we all get to enjoy without having to feel bad about them because the holidays are the perfect excuse! But the best part about enjoying delicious desserts is knowing that you made them […]
As I stated in my introductory post, I am a member of NSBE (National Society of Black Engineers). One of the major benefits of being a member of NSBE, is the opportunities the organization provides. These opportunities include, but are not limited to, conferences, workshops, and other events. Thus allowing members to make connections and network with recruiters in areas such as a full time job, internship, co-op, and or graduate school sectors.
Something most of us learn about in high school or in our early college careers is how equity and equality are not entirely the same thing. The most common example used to demonstrate this difference between the two is the picture above of people trying to watch a soccer game.
Being new to a city like St. Louis means there’s a lot of exploring that needs to be done. I thought since the Gateway Arch is one of the main things that St. Louis is known for, I should start there! My best friend from my previous institution came to visit me from Chicago during […]
Leadership is a quality I’ve always valued and found necessary in my life. As an older sister of 3 (the featured picture of my 3 younger sisters and older brother), growing up, it was always my job to be a role model and leader for my sisters. Since they looked up to me, and followed […]
Hello readers! As a new blogger, I believe it’s necessary for me to give a basic introduction and a little information about me.
