"It means a lot to be a woman of color in STEM. I hope I can act as an example for younger generations and help inspire them to tackle what has been predominantly male-dominated fields, like STEM. I would like the current landscape to mature into an environment where it is normal for women of color and women, in general, to work and complete higher education in the field of STEM," said Sanjana. "The Sezzle scholarship gives me the financial courage to attend Cornell University without the constant worry of how much I spend towards my academics and necessities," Sanjana continued.
