Atiana Bruce

My name is Atiana Bruce, and I will be a sophomore in chemical engineering at Texas A&M University in College Station this upcoming fall 2021 semester. I am so thankful for the opportunity to serve as a Professional Development Co-Chair for the Texas A&M collegiate chapter of Society of Women Engineers throughout the 2021-2022 year! As a first-year undergraduate student, I was an active member of the SWElites Freshman Leadership Program’s Professional Development Committee and a FLAME participant in the spring. I will be furthering my passion for research this summer by working on a collaborative project between Texas A&M chemical engineering Professors Dr. Micah Green and Dr. Jodie Lutkenhaus and Los Alamos National Laboratories representative, Dr. Hisato Yamaguchi; our research will pertain to atmospheric corrosion prevention using 2D nanomaterial coatings. I am originally from Dallas, Texas and graduated Valedictorian of the Class of 2020 from The Cambridge School of Dallas. My hobbies include photography, sketching, baking, and spending time with my four younger siblings.


Monica Arrambide Valdes 

Howdy! My name is Monica Arrambide Valdes and I am a junior Computer Science major from Katy, Texas. I am beyond excited to be one of the Professional Development Co-Chairs this year! I became involved with SWE my freshman year through SWElites, and I had the great opportunity to continue as a SWElites counselor this past year. In my free time, I enjoy playing tennis, listening to music, and hanging out with family and friends.
