As a Corps of Cadets alumna, Zymmorrah Myers has gained enough leadership skills and Ut Prosim (That I May Serve) spirit to last a lifetime. Now, as a graduate student in computer engineering, Myers is looking forward to taking those skills and transferring them to the workplace. While she experienced setbacks, as well as family losses, during her time at Virginia Tech, her perseverance and determination to push through has given her the confidence to obtain her master’s degree in a field that she hadn’t originally considered.

At one point, it felt like the world was crumbling around her, but Myers was aware of the state of her mental health. She found an outlet in exercise and decided to stand up in the midst of it all by leaning on others. Thanks to support from her mother, brother, and the community surrounding her in the College of Engineering and the Corps, the sky's the limit for this Hokie engineer. Her next stop? The U.S. Air Force.
