On January 17, 2018, I was awarded the Society of Women Engineers’ Outstanding Female Engineer Award. Every year, each department nominates one graduate and one undergraduate student to receive the award at University of Washington Society of Women Engineers Evening with Industry banquet. It was an honor to be a part of this event and interact with other amazing female engineers.
One of the many reasons why I feel motivated to keep pushing my limits is the encouragement I receive from my amazing mentors and friends. A great example of that was my friend Aparna Dharmakkan, who made it to the event despite a very busy workday and my friend Jeyavaishnavi who could warm my heart from more than a thousand miles away.
