Meet Kim Nguyen, Ericsson intern

"I was fortunate to receive an Ericsson grant to attend the IEEE WIE ILC. The event was amazing! I got to meet so many great people and get advice for my personal and professional development. Being with people who have accomplished great things was phenomenal. They offered me their stories and how they dealt with these situations, it’s really nice to hear about others’ experiences.

I also got to learn about some technologies that are being worked on. It’s so exciting to be in an environment where technologies like these are being invented and created every day – I definitely feel empowered and inspired! I was not exposed to the growth of technologies, their possibilities, and how they are integrated to our lives when I was younger, and seeing them now inspires me to change that for younger individuals."
