Google's Anita Borg Scholarship
"As a finalist of Google's Anita Borg Scholarship, I have a unique opportunity to attend the Google's Scholars retreat at the Googleplex in San Fransisco, California. At the retreat, I will have the chance to meet Google employees and other women who, like me, are passionate about engineering. I will use my scholarship towards my Masters in Electrical Engineering, which I will start at McGill this coming September. I will be working with Dr. Chodavarapu and building biological sensors. Besides offering monetary support, this scholarship also encourages me to pursue my career in engineering research."
