Meet Yao Poudima, an Nvolve alumna! Yao joined Nvolve last year, at the start of her senior year studying information sciences at the University of Maryland. She heard about the program from her school faculty and was interested in connecting with STEM-practicing women for mentorship. Yao describes her time at Nvolve as a pivotal period of growth. "Nvolve helped me see the other side of STEM, as a professional rather than a student. My favorite element of being an Nvolve scholar was conducting technical projects. I got to do a podcast series on telecommunications. It gave me a chance to speak my mind on technology with confidence and pushed me to share my knowledge."
Yao cherishes her relationship with her mentor. "Working with my mentor showed me that, as a black woman, I am capable of doing anything that I am passionate about." After her graduation, Yao successfully landed a technology position at a major national firm. Yao is one of the many high-achieving students at Nvolve.
