Shea High School ’17
University of Rhode Island ’22
Biomedical Engineering

“I chose biomedical engineering because I wanted to be in the medical field but didn’t want to work in a hospital. It will allow me to practice a form of medicine.”

Graduated from: Shea High School. Campus involvement at URI: Student Alliance for the Welfare of Africa (SAWA), National Society of Black Engineers (NSBE). The best thing about college: “Getting an internship that gave me insight into what I could potentially be doing in my field after graduation and also getting paid to learn.” A recent accomplishment: “I was able to present my research from the summer at a conference and won an award for my poster.” Title of her poster: “Robotic Hand Control Using Tripolar EEG with Brain Computer Interface.” Dream job: Research and development biomedical engineer. A recent challenge: “Having a professor who does not fit with my learning style and learning to overcome that.” How did The College Crusade help you? “By helping me believe in myself at a young age and having the opportunity to dream that I can be anything I want to be.” Resources you seek out for support and encouragement: “I try to use every resource available to me for issues that I have. For example, I go to the academic enhancement center for help studying and with homework. I also go to the career office for help updating my resume and other professional needs.” Advice for high school Crusaders just starting college: “Always do what works for you, regardless of what is working for others.” Where do you want to be five years from now? “I want to have my bachelor’s degree and be working on my master’s with a job as an engineer.” If you could have a superpower, what would it be? “To be able to teleport so that I am never late for anything.” What music makes you happy? Christmas songs. Favorite quote: From Psalm 46:5 – “God is within her, she will not fall.” One thing you miss about being a kid: “The ability to finish all my homework in two hours max!” If you could go anywhere in the world, where would you go? “I want to go everywhere.”
