     “This program has allowed me to explore my passion for both chemistry and business through eye-opening experiences inside and outside of
      the classroom”.
      Last year, Shoshauna took part in an international experience where she travelled to France to study chemical engineering.
      “I saw the subject through a new lens and learned alongside peers from France, Switzerland and Germany. Being exposed to their diverse
      viewpoints illustrated the importance of culture and its influence on the industry.”

      about MIT?
     “I love being in a community that
      realizes the power of connecting
      creativity and critical thinking in
      an unprecedented way. For me, it
      is about being in a program that
      gives me the opportunity and tools
      to be a trailblazer in a new field.
      I can directly apply what I have
      learned into real-world situations by
      volunteering with media groups
      on campus.”
      An important part of Aleah’s
      experience is her involvement in
      different kinds of media work on
      campus. “As a Sports Intern for the
      student Gazette, I was given the
      opportunity to immerse myself in the
      world of sports journalism and had
      some amazing mentors along the
      way. They gave me the opportunity
      to be a published sports writer,
      which is a pretty incredible feat
      before I even graduate.”
