FAVORITE PART OF SWE: My favorite part about SWE is the overwhelming support the organization provides to help foster one’s personal and professional identity. As a woman in STEM, SWE has been the community I didn’t know I needed. As a freshman this past year, I was often wary of my academic and career goals. However, the people in SWE have always been very supportive at meeting any needs I had, and I’ve gained so many helpful insights from such a hard-working group of women.
