During my early morning browsing of my Facebook newsfeed I came across this story: http://newsok.com/stem-student-is-breaking-tradition-at-eoc-tech/article/5537178
It’s a wonderful story of a young woman’s spirit and drive to pursue her goals in spite of being the lone female in the high school STEM classes and who knows what other challenges she may face.
Engineering is not a quiet undertaking. It takes grit and determination, an insatiable hunger for learning, a willingness to remove oneself from the social scene, and an ability to ignore the naysayers, teachers, professors, family, friends, other students, who may try to derail progress towards the goal.
Keeping your eye on the prize, a career full of design challenges and rewards, is worth the sweat equity that engineering studies require.
For Tayte and all the Taytes to come, I wish you spirit and motivation to make your dreams a reality.
