After church on Sunday, I enjoyed shrimp pho with a friend at a hole-in-the-wall restaurant in Columbia Heights.

Visited Georgetown University with my roommates. Beautiful campus!

Traveled to The American Center for Physics in Maryland to collaborate with the PhysTEC (Physics Teacher Education Coalition) team for my research project at NSF. Y’all the building is literally located on Physics Ellipse Drive – for a nerd physicist like me, this was social media worthy :]

I had the honor of being invited to represent the National Science Foundation at the annual Women in STEAM Fair at the Rayburn House Office Building on Capitol Hill. I loved meeting the young girls and getting them excited about STEAM! This was a highlight for me because my passion in science centers around teaching and inspiring young minority students.

Us QEM interns attended the Lemelson Invention Ambassadors event, where different STEM entrepreneurs presented not only their work, but their difficult paths to success. I got to network with several of the Ambassadors, and received leadership insights for my own current and future endeavors.
