In a little over two weeks, over 550 seniors will be celebrating Commencement and awarded their degrees, as they prepare to leave these gates to go make positive change in communities around the world. From artists to writers and athletes to scientists, each student has had their own transformative experience at Mount Holyoke. Katie Ho ’16, a computer science major and Chinese minor, talks about her proudest accomplishment here at MHC:
"Cofounding HackHolyoke, the first collegiate hackathon hosted on a women's college campus. Being part of an all-girls robotics team named Einstein's Daughters through middle and high school back in California was when I first became aware of the lack of women in STEM. However, I have since started to build off of my imposter syndrome to encourage other young girls and high school graduates to pursue computer science and engineering. Through HackHolyoke, we were able to create a supportive space for both beginners and seasoned coders of all majors and backgrounds.
