6/6 - Headed to NSBE NLC at US Coast Guard Academy in New London - As you know, I'm a member of the National Society of Black Engineers and serve as a regional and national professionals leader (Region 1 Professionals Chairperson to be exact). I spend the day headed to our National Leadership Conference! Granted, Amtrak ruined both my going and return trip(no surprise there), but the actual conference was amazing!

6/7 - NLC Gala - We had a great and super productive day, and ended it with a gala at the O Club (Officer's Club) and I got to wear my dainty Lindy Bop dress for the 1st time! Didn't get a full shot on my phone, but check out our Region 1 Facebook page for pics when they come out, I took a few there! And of course, I accessorized in all fuscia pink!

6/8 - Meeting Some Awesome USCGA Women! - During the conference, we got to meet Miss Womack, who is currently the only Black woman at the USCGA studying Engineering! She joined some of our meetings, and our chairperson Soseena Wood gave her a complimentary membership for the year! We also were escorted the entire weekend by other awesome USCGA women, including Miss Anderson! And I made sure to take a picture with them!
