Our first senior to graduate during COVID-19 was Amanda "Dory" Gorges. She graduated in the Fall of 2020 with a Bachelors in Mechanical Engineering.
While at University of Michigan-Dearborn, she interned at Tachi-s and had a co-op at DTE, where she currently works.
Amanda loved that "every experience within the sorority was a learning experience, the good times and the okay times. The interactions, social, and professional events helped me understand what a professional role would be like within STEM. Being apart of AOE also shined the importance of knowing how much a reputation will impact those around you. This meant that myself and those around me must take responsibility for our actions in order to positively reflect on the other sisters of the sorority."
After graduating, she is in the midst of pursuing a masters degree while also striving for her long terms goal of starting or managing a large corporation.
We wish you luck in your endeavors Amanda! As your namesake said, "just keep swimming."
