Oh, ​The Places You’ll Go!

As I reflect upon my journey as a Ph.D. candidate at North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University, I have been truly blessed. I never imagined that when I began this program I would be so blessed to be able to travel the world to present my research, meet new colleagues, and create lasting memories. I’ve had the pleasure of attending many conferences to learn and most importantly to present. Here are some of the places I’ve been able to go:

There are no words that can truly encompass the grateful heart I have. As this journey nears an end, I will never forget the opportunities afforded to me. If you’ve ever considered doing a Ph.D. program let me be the first to tell you to DO IT! You won’t regret it! Many of these places listed I had never been before and never dreamed I’d be able to visit. Below are a few snippets from my latest trip to San Francisco.

 

A Panelist, Judge, and Instructor. OH MY!

So today is the complete definition of what I’d like to call “A Good Day!” I started my day off by being a panelist for North Carolina A&T State University’s Transfer & Graduate Open House. The panel was comprised of PhD and Masters student’s in various disciplines. We shared with prospective students our experiences, things to know, what to expect, etc. The panel concluded with the Graduate College giving us gifts 🙂

My next stop was to attend the Region 2 National Society of Black Engineers Conference. I had the pleasure of being a judge for the poster competition. I was truly inspired by the young bright minds of the future. I’m in awe of the research that is taking place within the various engineering fields. It is a privilege to be a judge that is able to support the learning as well as to encourage the young scholars.

My last event while at the conference was to be an Instructor for INTech Camp for Girls. I had soooooooo much fun! I was able to share with the young ladies my journey in STEM as well as teach them HTML. The young ladies were in high school and already have very impressive resumes. It was an honor to meet the next generation of computer scientists!

Below are a few videos and of pictures from the day!
