How Technology Plays a Role
As an engineer who launches rockets, Lenovo’s technology will help support my training and work across several disciplines: sharing rocket designs/drawings, monitoring biometric data, and verifying all checkpoints have been completed prior to launch.
As a STEM advocate, I have found a new passion for Science Communication. Through creating content on social media, I am helping change the narrative of what a female engineer looks like by sharing insights on what I do in the space industry and my journey. With Lenovo’s tech, I will be able to work from anywhere and be more efficient when creating and editing content.
