Meet our Historian, Zoe Wright!

Hi i’m Zoe Wright, this years Historian Representative. I’m a 2nd year Biomedical Engineering major Im working towards the goal of being a medical tech developer if having to specialize my top choice would be as a rehabilitation engineer. This is my first year as a representative of any club and I am so glad to be working along SWE to help me branch out within this community!

Why did you pick your major?

"I picked my major with the help of my surroundings, growing up in Silicon Valley I’ve always been very connected to tech. I knew whatever I wanted had to involve the medical field as well since I was actually interested in being a nurse prior. I had realized I didn’t have to leave the medical side to also engage in the tech side so with a bit more research, I came to the conclusion of biomedical engineering was the perfect major for me "

What is your favorite course?

"My favorite course so far would have to be BME 205, “Fundamentals of Medical Electronics"

Why are you in SWE?

"I am in SWE because it offers a community of empowered women who are working towards technical job careers for their future. To be surrounded by women who have the same aspirations as me it’s truly motivational, SWE offers a great place to connect and grow amongst each other and that’s what I’ll be doing here until I graduate. "

Advice for women in STEM:

"My advice for any woman in stem is to look out for each other there’s not many of us to begin with so when you do interact with other women, make sure you have each other’s back to make it easier for yourself and each other. I understand that working within stem based communities is a pretty competitive, but make sure to not base what you’re working for, off of what other people are doing, but off of what you want to do and stand by that because that’s the only true motivation you need not competition.
