I have been awarded a GHC Scholarship Grant to attend the 2014 Grace Hopper Celebration of Women in Computing. My poster entitled “Mechanics and Physics of HIV Virus interaction With Cell-Membranes” is also selected for presentation at the conference. The aim of this conference is to celebrate the success of women in computing and inspire more women to build a career in technology.
This year’s conference feature prominent women in technology: Shafi Goldwasser, Arati Prabhakar, Maria Klawe, to name a few. The Grace Hopper Celebration consists of a combination of technical sessions and career sessions and includes a poster session, career fair, awards ceremony, and more. I am extremely enthusiastic attend the following events: Scholarship Recipients Meet and Greet, Scholarship Recipients Lunch, Leadership workshops and CRA-W career mentoring workshops. In addition, I am looking forward to the keynote sessions.
I thank Anita Borg Institute and other sponsors for this amazing opportunity!
