My name is Shanyah Byrom, a Civil Engineering major at Temple University, class of 2022! Ever since high school, my strongest asset has been in mathematics, and I have always had an interest in construction. My goal is to someday become a Project Engineer. Being an African American, I know what it is like to want to excel beyond what is expected of us and know what it is like to want to encourage black excellence in the engineering fields. I hope to inspire people who look like me to get comfortable with being uncomfortable, because I believe that is where we all thrive. Thus, I am honored to be a part of the National Society of Black Engineers as Finance Chair!
