当同学凯文·多明格斯问 费尔南达·托瓦尔 共同发现社会在十大棋牌游戏APP西班牙裔专业工程师(SHPE)的一章,她很感兴趣。她听说过之前的组织甚至已经参加了在不同章节的SHPE事件。然而,她承担的任务之前暂停。 “我正要在我本科[年]作为一个俱乐部的一部分,这么晚了一点点犹豫,但是看到的SHPE可以提供给学生喜欢我之后,我受到启发,想大,”她说。 “我想帮助建立本章推进未来干生在纽约的高科技。”不久后,她成为了章的秘书,当她决定继续她的学业,并追求她的硕士学位 计算机科学 在纽约的高科技,它给了她机会,帮助她成长帮助发现的章节。

When the New York Tech SHPE chapter got the ball rolling, they were faced with a huge obstacle: a global pandemic that shut down all in-person events and activities. However, the board continues to meet remotely and make plans for the future.

A strong foundation will help SHPE thrive in future years.”

Tovar knows how important clubs that focus on minorities are for a community. “We all want to feel included and valued, and SHPE does that specifically for Hispanic students and, in general, anyone who values our community,” she says. “Bringing a national organization to our community helps us bring opportunities offered by SHPE to the minorities in our student body.

毕业后,她希望能确保位置的数据分析,并最终结合自己的技能和她的激情对环境和可持续发展。 “我想我的野心和知识借给帮助找到解决方案,为应对气候变化。”
