“I loved the 10,000 Degrees resources I was provided in the newsletter such as the internship information. I also felt very supported by my mentor.
An obstacle I worried about was making wrong decisions. Since my parents did not study here, I had to find my path on my own. This made me really nervous to start college.
My family had moved to America from Nepal in order for my sister and me to obtain a better education and future. Attending college allows me to improve the world and give back to my parents for their sacrifices. I would like to support my little sister when she attends college since I did not have that support from my parents.
I hope to add more to the women of color in STEM. Whatever I do in the future, I hope it changes the world positively.”
