Position: Publicity & Media Officer
Hi, my name is Mehar and I am a third-year Artificial Intelligence and Computer Science student and the current Publicity & Media Officer. My role involves managing the society’s social media accounts and website by publicising events and replying to messages from students and companies. I also design posters and posts to promote events and edit the “Women’s Wednesday” blog. What I like about my role is the fact that I get the opportunity to advertise events I enjoyed participating in, to other students. I am also slightly addicted to social media!!
I chose to study AI and Computer Science because I enjoy programming and coming up with creative solutions to real-life problems. In school, I was drawn to Maths, Sciences and Computer Science due to how logical it was. I want to take an active role in solving problems faced in the world.
Why Women in Engineering:
I joined the WIE society as I wanted to meet other girls who had the same passion for Engineering as me. In my previous years, I got involved in many events offered by WIE which I found very inspiring and informative. My role has given me the possibility to break stereotypes and gender placement on STEM subjects.
