Good morning everyone! Ready to get to know Shreya, one of your RCR’s, a little more?

My name is Shreya and I am one of the Region H RCR’s! I am currently a senior in Bioengineering at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.

When I was 12 years old I started attending outreach events hosted by SWE. I continued participating in these activities from middle school through high school. My involvement in these engineering workshops encouraged me to look into different engineering majors and programs. Since I liked biology and math I decided to go into bioengineering. During my freshman year at the University of Illinois I joined our SWE section as a member of the Fundraising committee. After that I went on to become our section’s fundraising director and then external vice president. Currently, I am a part of our section’s nominating committee and the Region H RCR. I love being involved in SWE because it’s a great way to meet other women engineers at my school and across the country. Outside of school and SWE I love trying new things and getting to know other people and drink hazelnut coffee (my fave)!

Stay SWAwesome Region H!
