Afsheen Mozammel, Senior Process Engineer at DMMI, was one of five featured panelists during Purdue University Northwest’s “Brave Not Perfect, Breaking the Glass Ceiling” event in celebration of Women’s History Month.
Afsheen, a Purdue alumnae, was invited to serve on the panel with female leaders from business, finance, higher education and nonprofit sectors. Purdue honored the panel with alumna awards and welcomed them to tell their stories of growing their careers with courage.
Afsheen told her story of leaving her home country of Bangladesh to pursue her dreams in America.
“It was a tough decision to leave home and come to an unknown country with no friends and family and start all over, giving up my comfort zone, my family, stable job and everything where I grew up. When I look back in time, I realize that this decision has changed my life more ways than one and made me only stronger and more self-dependent,” Afsheen said.
