Who is an inspirational woman in your life? Why?

My mom has been the most inspirational and influential woman in my life.  She grew up in a small town in northeast Arkansas but recognized the importance of education early in life. She moved to Memphis, Tennessee to pursue a career in nursing. In addition to teaching me the value of education, she taught me to work hard, believe in myself and know that I could achieve anything I set my mind to. 

How are you inspiring the women in your life?

As a female in the engineering field, I strive to inspire young girls to consider careers in STEM. I have participated as a volunteer tutor for elementary and middle schools as well as opportunities to share my story at career days. I hope to encourage young women to believe in themselves and inspire them to become engineers.
