At the top of the year, her family announced they were moving to Georgia, so she saved up money by completing odd jobs, got an apartment and decided to stay in Indiana to finish her degree at Ivy Tech.
“Andrea is a hard-working student who took great strides to complete her degree,” said Ariel Crawley, director of the IvyWorks program.
Throughout the year, Andrea earned various accolades including going to Washington DC to represent LiFT for a tech conference. In addition, she is one of three Ivy Tech students who were accepted to TechPoint’s Xtern program and was matched with an organization for next summer.
Xtern is a national program based in Indianapolis where students compete for paid internships with various tech organizations in Indiana.
At 20-years-old, Andrea is one of the youngest students to complete IvyWorks-Indy Women in Tech.
