I first joined NSBE in 2008 as a college sophomore after a friend encouraged me to tag along to a general body meeting. I didn’t have any expectations going in, but I ended up finding a family, a support network and several role models and mentors whom I still look up to today. Once I had experienced NSBE, I couldn’t help but feel motivated to lead others to achieve the mission. After serving at the chapter level, I went on to serve as 2010 – 2011 Region II Academic Excellence Chair, 2011 – 2013 National Academic Excellence Chair and 2013 – 2014 National Programs Chair.

My daily passions include cooking, family and traveling! Although I am an engineer by trade, I am starting to believe that I am an educator by nature. After having a child of my own, I began to realize how truly profound the moment is when a child learns a new skill or understands a concept. I chose my trade because I have a passion for STEM, but as I evolve, I have felt those passions begin to shift toward instilling a passion for learning in others.

Considering the shift in my passions, I can see myself finding a way to combine my passion for STEM with early childhood education, specifically geared toward our communities that need it the most.

For me, Convention is all about crafting a value-added experience that balances the NSBE business with an individual, motivating experience. Many of the people I speak with about Convention refer to it as a true milestone in their lives, one just based on the raw power they felt when they were surrounded by thousands of engineers. However, I want to ensure that NSBE leadership is taken seriously and that the governance of the Society is also seen as a primary focus of the Annual Convention by all attendees.

To increase the number of culturally responsible black engineers who excel academically, succeed professionally and positively impact the community. Visit NSBE.org for more information.
