Sanyogita also participated in the Award Event in December 2020 for the Tech4Girls workshop in Trinidad and Tobago and Jamaica. She gave an inspirational speech, sharing her own experiences, not having any female engineers to look up to as a young girl. “I didn’t even know that these careers existed,” she said. “I knew I liked math and in the tenth grade, I decided to go towards electrical engineering because it seemed to have the most math involved.” Now, as a professional in network engineering, and a mother of two young women, Sanyogita knows the value of having a mentor to encourage breaking stereotypes and moving towards something you love.
