Chihiro is a Software Engineer at General Dynamics Mission Systems, where she develops, integrates, and tests software for various projects. As a kid, Chihiro wanted to be an artist, and digital art and piano are still some of her favorite hobbies. Chihiro loves problem solving, and says that the feeling of accomplishment that comes from solving a challenging problem is one of her favorite parts of her job. She says,

“Every obstacle is a problem you can solve, whether you are a girl or a boy!”

Although in college she struggled with others’ assumptions that she wasn’t good enough to be an engineer, she has learned that problem solving is not exclusive. Furthermore, she reminds us to “just remember that just because you’re a woman, it doesn’t mean that you’re any worse at solving problems! Everyone can solve problems.”
