The atmosphere here is very empowering for women, and I've never felt like I was a minority.I hope more women join this company because I'd like everyone to be able to experience the same positive environment and perks as I do. Although I wasn't one of the three winners chosen to receive a cash prize, as a finalist, I was fortunate to be granted interviews with several members of the Palo Alto Networks team. I flew home, and a few weeks later, I received a formal offer for an internship!

It is only by doing this that we "frogs" can see beyond our wells and truly understand the world. That's the power of an ENG.
