What does beauty mean to you?
Beauty is when someone smiles through their struggles. Beauty is when someone smiles through tears.
When do you feel most beautiful?
When I help someone.
What does being a woman mean to you?
Being a woman means sharing, caring and rising above all differences to help people. In career. In family. In life.
What do you love about yourself?
I love that I forgive even when it is difficult.
Tell me your story.
I have degrees in mechanical and aerospace engineering. I want to lead the way for the little girls who are confused about what they want from life. I want to teach them that there is beauty in intelligence and that there is intelligence in beauty.
What do you think was the biggest turning point in your life?
Getting my Masters. Those two years taught me a lot about goals and choices. I am a better person because of it.
Please finish the statement- I am a person who…
wants to succeed and help other women do the same.
