Hi, I’m Libby Dale, a senior studying Computer Science at the University of Michigan with an International Minor in Engineering.
I took my first computer science class my second semester of college and it changed my life. It was the hardest class I had taken in college at that point and I loved it. I didn’t choose CS as my major for being easy, no it certainly was not that. I choose it because it’s constantly changing and improving. What has kept me going is the belief that I will be able to use what I have learned to innovate and help create new technology.
I was sponsored by GEECS to attend the Grace Hopper Conference in Orlando, FL this past October.
I was able to connect with fellow women in engineering and attend events set up by the organization.
As the VP of Corporate Relations for SGE I led a group of dedicated students to connect them with companies. This was done through hosting a variety of events including information sessions, games, and lunches.
