    Hi Ms. Government to EdTech, Melisa here from Stratus Admissions. I get very excited when I see bright young minds wanting to help innovate in the world of education. I am sure that your time working through Covid has been challenging and the experiences you have faced will help you to continue to move the needle in education, hopefully in women breaking into tech.

I am sure you know Stanford is about making a big impact. So I would encourage you to think …
