Reaching for the Stars
"My SHPE MIT chapter became my Familia away from home and that's where I grew for years, becoming a vice president, then president of that chapter. I was able to represent them at conference and grow more as a person, as a leader, and as an engineer." - Xavier Zapien, a SHPE grad student member who plans to become a Chief Engineer and one day an astronaut

"Since SHPE changed my life, I can't think of a better way to thank them than to give back to my chapter. My hope is to influence students to feel like they are a part of something bigger and that engineering is definitely for them." - Catherine Trevino, President at the University of Texas, Rio Grande Valley chapter, who landed an Intel internship through SHPE
