My short-term goals include excelling in my field of study, which is electrical engineering, as well as being able to apply acquired skills and knowledge in real-life scenarios. My goals also include staying in touch with my family. I come from a culture that is very family-oriented and moving out and living on campus proved to be hard on my family, seeing that it is not common for a girl to move out before marriage. My goal is to always stay in touch, primarily with my mother, and to try to be part of important family milestones. Staying close to my family will also help me stay connected with my cultural heritage, which will allow me to be a more effective SHPE-IIT leader by allowing me to identify myself more intimately with others of similar mindsets and backgrounds.
After graduating from law school in intellectual property law, I plan to join a law firm such a Fish & Richardson and gain experience as a litigator. I also wish to make an example of myself and give back to my community, in particular inspiring kids to pursue higher education in the STEM fields.
