GIRLS WHO CODE

While interning at GE during the summer of 2016, I was a mentee to one of the high school girls in the Girls Who Code Immersion Program. We had events where I gave her advice of choosing colleges, careering planning, and life- in general. 

I also was on the schedule/ planning committee for the GWC Graduation, and volunteered at multiple events throughout the summer.

Polytechnic Ambassador | TechieRep

As a Purdue Polytechnic Ambassador, I participated in Purdue Polytechnic recruitment events. This included giving tours of the Knoy College of Technology building for groups of 10-45 prospective students and their families. I gave presentations and was a panelist on my experience at Purdue University and the opportunities given within the Purdue Polytechnic. I also served on a panel with 3 other women, talking about the importance about Women in STEM.

As a TechieRep, I went back to my high school, other high schools in the Metro Detroit area, and my classmates areas (Indiana and Illinois) and spoke to groups of 10-30 high schools students to recruit them for the Purdue Polytechnic  Institute.   

INCLUSION COMMITTEE

As an ITLP (Information Technology Leadership Program) Intern at GE in the summer of 2016, I served as the lead of the Inclusion Committee. The Inclusion Committee served to increase intern bonding through events. As lead, we planned 7 events on a $800 budget. I encouraged the other interns to volunteer for Girls Who Code and Books for Africa. We had a fun take on networking by celebrating Half Christmas (June 25th) by decorating our intern collaboration area with Christmas decorations and doing a secret sock Santa exchange with full time employees. This increase our relationships with the full-time employees in IT by bonding over our love of crazy socks. The interns also had a rocket league competition, Raspberry Pi demo, Movie Night, and playing Top Golf.
