My road in life took a while to figure out.
First I did not know what I wanted to major in, but I knew I liked math.
Then I heard engineering needed more girls, it was a challenging major, and you could get a good job.
Then I got good grades so I could get an engineering internship and see what engineers do.
Then I went to a lot of career fairs and found a job in technical project management at AT&T.
Keep following my journey

Working Independently

Day to Day

I manage projects by hosting conference calls to discuss roadblocks with other team members. I use Excel to make graphs and charts that tell a story about whether we progressing fast enough to meet our final goal. I make presentations for upper management so they know how well each team is performing and so they can help if a team is struggling.

Advice for Getting Started

Here's the first step for high school students

Take as many math, physics, and chemistry AP classes as you can. You will cover a lot of the same material your freshman year of college and it helps if it is not your first time seeing it.
