Lanee Brown is from the “Windy city”, Chicago, Illinois, attending Tuskegee University as a junior majoring in mechanical engineering. She chose mechanical engineering as her major because she has always been good with math, and also skilled with drawing and designing. When she gets her degree in 2024, she plans on focusing on mechanical designs, where she will be able to design parts and products in the mechanical nature. Lanee chose to attend
Tuskegee University because she wanted to be around people that look like her and also have the same goals in life, she wanted to be able to have strong and meaningful connections with the alumni at her HBCU, to help guide her in the direction she’s trying to go. Lanee believed that attending an HBCU would make her more focused on her goals and future, where she won’t feel in competition with her classmates but in a team spirit where everyone helps everyone.
At Tuskegee University, Lanee is a part of different groups, where she is the social media chair for the Society of Women Engineers, an honorary member of the National Society of Leadership and Success, tutors with Next Step Up, and is a part of Active Minds, Pre- Alumni Council,
Street Team, American Institute of Chemical Engineers, Events Committee for the Junior class, and National Association for the Advancement of Colored People. Outside of her school hobbies, she likes braiding hair for her friends and classmates on campus at Tuskegee, while also helping her classmates with their math classes.
