Krishna's Message to Women in Technology (WiT) current and prospective members:
"IUPUI community has brought many ups and downs in my life and challenged and motivated me to be a better person, a better student and a better leader! IUPUI made a huge impact in my life and I am grateful to have been accepted as one of their very few female Mechanical Engineers! IUPUI prepared me for the professional life that I am now leading so I can't thank my professors and ME staff enough for all they have done for me! They supported me throughout my academic life and made sure that I was putting my best foot forward."
"Women in Technology (WiT) has been one of the driving forces in my life since I have been a part of it. Being an Events Coordinator for WiT for a semester and a School of Engineering and Technology Liaison for a year gave me an opportunity to showcase my skills and ability as a team player and a leader. WiT promotes and encourages women to be a part of male-dominated careers and that is one of the best things about being a part of such a group. There is a lot of support and it is a great way to network with other females in such careers."
"I am one of the Mechanical Engineers at Matrix Technologies (and the only female Engineer at the Indy branch). Matrix holds the prestige of being the only company to be a two year winner of the System Integrator of the Year (2009 and 2012) and I am honored to be a part of such a group. One might think that being the only female Engineer would be intimidating but it is the complete opposite. I enjoy being the pioneer of female engineer at this branch of the office and look forward to bringing in more female engineers into the company. I am in this field of work because I enjoy the type of work engineers do (and I am not involved in only mechanical engineering but also electrical, civil, chemical and other engineering firms) and hope to be the best at what I do. There is a lot of respect in being of the engineers and it is a lot of fun!! There is a stigma about such fields of work for female but I say if you enjoy engineering then that is what you should do!"
"The most valuable skills when pursuing any career is to be confident in yourself and the work you do (that will take you far), be true to yourself first in what you want in life (in regards to the type of work you want to do), kindness, humility and love for one another."
