Major: Information Technology
Alyssa is an active member in the Society of Women Engineers. She’s a sophomore getting her Bachelor’s Degree in Information Technology. She’s currently the Document Chair for UNT SWE and is an active volunteer at SWE events.
Alyssa originally heard about the Society of Women Engineers from her mother who found a scholarship through National SWE, sadly she didn’t know about SWE and was not a SWE member at the time and did not qualify. However at her orientation at UNT Alyssa spoke with the Public Relations Chair, Amber Sodikov, at the UNT SWE recruiting table and thought the organization was interesting. After that she attended a SWE meeting and signed up! Now she’s an active National member.
Alyssa is currently the Document Chair for UNT SWE. As Document Chair, Alyssa takes minutes at every general meeting and helps the Secretary manage SWE documents. She’s also volunteered at SWE events, such as the Concession Stands and the Homecoming Tailgate.
During her time in Future Business Leaders of America, Alyssa made it to the National Competition and placed 6th in the nation for Desktop Publishing, a competition to design professional documents! Alyssa currently has an internship with the City of Lewisville in the IT department, where she works to help patrons troubleshoot and fix broken or malfunctioning computers.
Alyssa you’re doing amazing! Keep up the good work and thank you for being an active member of SWE!
