Student Participant Quotes and Feedback

Thank you so much to you and Ms. Wei for hosting the Intel event today. It was huge help to network with such amazing women in tech that we all look up to. They gave us great insights and some of the ideas discussed gave me a head-start to get a clearer picture of what's ahead. Such events are really inspiring and I would love to be a part of them in the future as well. Please feel free to reach out to me for any volunteer help or anything else you might require as well.  Thank you so much! I really appreciate your time and efforts to help us build our careers and support us.

I would just like to thank you for giving us such an amazing opportunity and for working so hard to help us kind of have a leeway into the getting into the industry. It was overall a great day and experience and I would love to do something like this again! :) 

- Manal Ahmed, SJSU Biomedical Engineering

Thank you for your hard work in getting everyone on the waitlist into the Intel tour. It was a great experience and all the Intel ladies were so energetic. I appreciated all the advice that was given. After the panel was over I asked the Intel ladies about graduate school and when is the best time to go based on their experiences. Professor Belle Wei also advised me on my question. The main thing I took from this experience was how to network within a company because it will give you a boost in moving up the corporate ladder. Thank you again Arlene.

I would like to thank you for such an opportunity of going to Intel and get the experimental of interacting with women in the engineering field. I learned from this experience that one has to be organized and balanced in order to succeed in our careers.  Feedback of this field trip is to have more fields of engineering instead of just computing. Thank you again!
