African American women are extremely underrepresented in engineering but NSBE gave me a sense of belonging. I went in as a naïve college student with my resume in hand to see what opportunities were available. I left the conference with networking and interviewing skills and gained knowledge about different companies and opportunities to work in an engineering role. I went back to the conference in 2018 and was offered five interviews and three full-time positions.”

“Oftentimes you may convince yourself that, ‘If school is this much of a burden, certainly I don’t want to be an engineer.’ Don’t listen to that voice. There is a dire need for what you will bring to the table. Your authenticity, your culture, your background, and your unique experiences are exactly what the industry needs. Your contribution to the field not only promotes a diverse industry of people but also a diverse way of thinking. Beyond that you are intelligent, you are innovative, and you are capable. The industry is waiting for you so don’t give up!”
