My goals keep me going, I know I can get there from here.
As president of HCC’s chapter of the National Society of Black Engineers, Brianna is helping to encourage diversity among STEM students.

Brianna knew all about sleepless nights, forgotten meals, and those occasional never-ending weeks with four exams to get through. But she also knew that her hard work and perseverance would be worth all of the effort in the long run. An aspiring civil engineer, Brianna made the most of her college experience by not only getting involved, but also taking the lead. She served as president of Howard Community College’s chapter of the National Society of Black Engineers (NSBE), a club she helped establish on campus to encourage diversity and networking opportunities for STEM students.

“Being a STEM major is not easy,” says Brianna. “I helped start this local chapter of NSBE to give students more opportunities to grow while they are studying at HCC, rather than having to wait until they transfer to a four-year university or college.”

Brianna transferred to the University of Maryland College Park to complete a bachelor’s degree in civil engineering. She feels that because of her experience at HCC, she is well prepared to pursue her goals and find success.

“My goals keep me going,” says Brianna. “I know I can get there from here.”
