Growing up in Ghana, Naomi was drawn to the health sector. She envisioned herself as a surgeon and teacher. The challenge was a lack of role models. “We had arts kids and we had science kids,” she says, “but there weren’t a lot of professional women in STEM fields.” Not a problem at WPI. Naomi’s found mentors and role models in research labs and professional seminars. And she loves how WPI’s project-based curriculum fits her learning style. “Almost everything includes team-based problem solving—just like the real world. Very few undergrads outside of WPI get to work this way every day.”

No need to start the day too early. Great dissection of Milton this morning in our Literature of Sin class discussion.
Brought my lunch out to the quad. Sunshine and free coffee from the Interfraternity Council—they’ve always got something going on.
Three-hour Experimental Chem lab flies by. Testing pesticide levels on fruit with two of my best friends/lab partners.
Finished running a Psych Lab study, now homework. I like to study when everyone else is sleeping, and I love to sleep in.
