Pushing Her Comfort Zone – Mindie Stanford

Mindie Stanford Brockwell, ’16, made the most of her experience at Meredith College, where she participated in the Engineering Dual Degree Program, a collaboration between Meredith and North Carolina State University. As a Presidential Scholar and a member of the Honors Program, Mindie completed three majors, multiple internships, and was a member of the College’s track and field team.

In May 2016, Mindie received a Bachelor of Arts degree in mathematics from Meredith College and Bachelor of Science degrees in computer engineering and electrical engineering from N.C. State.

She gives credit to the Meredith community for helping her succeed.

“Meredith College gave me so much support during my time there. Whether faculty, fellow students, or my coaches, I always had someone give me that extra push or help me out of my comfort zone.”

Another way that Mindie made the most of her college experience was been through her internship at Cisco Systems, where she was offered a job after graduation. She now works as a data integrations software engineer for Keen Decisions Systems and is a data instructor for UNC-Chapel Hill Boot Camps.

Even though her academic and athletic activities kept her busy, Mindie served as a resident assistant, a tutor in the Learning Center, and a member of the Honors Committee. She also found time to participate in Meredith traditions. Her favorite experience was her senior Cornhuskin’.

“At the end of the day, I think what makes me a strong Meredith College woman is that I have learned to trust in my own experience and have confidence in the face of adversity.”
