Wow! We need more black female engineers. Kudos to you!
Good mentors, supportine network and relationship with Christ helped me. Believing in myself. Taking care of myself in all aspects helped me. If anyone is giving you problems because you choose your future of some fly-by-night relationship, club, activity, etc. - drop them. You do not need them or their drama. There will be people who will pull you up and others who will try to bring you down...don't worry about them. Stay focused and remember why you're in college in the first place, to get that degree. I hope you go on to graduate school.
