Being involved as much as possible is how one can really feed that passion that one has in them. At least that's Emily's advice. That being said, Emily fuels her admiration for technology through discovering her different interests within the field, from participating in cybersecurity competitions (and placing 5th in state for the Girls Go Cyberstart competition), to meeting and communicating with women in the STEM field through ChickTech, to even working with a company to develop a mobile app. Emily will be studying Computer Science at the University of Texas at Austin with a focus in Cybersecurity. Emily's pride in her nation has led her to aiming to pursue a STEM career within the government.
