She was born in the aftermath of Rwanda’s tragic genocide, which fueled Ury’s aspiration to uplift her family.

ASME kept tracking every step of this young engineer’s journey to becoming a rocket scientist. Ury was awarded ASME scholarships thrice. She seized opportunities by the ASME Scholarship, including a transformative encounter with IBM’s Vice President of Technology Product Engineering at an engineering conference. Eurydice “Ury” Kanimba underscores the profound impact of early engagement with ASME. With her bold leadership, nurtured through her ASME student section leader role, she now mentors young women and inspires immigrants aspiring to be an engineer like her.

Ury, a rocket scientist, soared to remarkable achievements with an offer from IBM to be a full-time advisory engineer. Her success is a testament to ASME’s commitment to a field where diversity and inclusion remain challenging. With nearly 45% of scholarships awarded to students of color and 40% to female students, ASME paves the way for a more equitable engineering landscape.
