Bomkamp also was selected from the 10 women to receive the L'Oreal Paris Beauty of Giving Award. Her award was announced during a Google Hangout where Bomkamp joined Glamour Editor-in-Chief Cindi Leive and MSNBC's Alex Wagner to talk about how young women can make their dreams a reality.
In 2011, Bomkamp was named one of 21 Amazing Young Women by Glamour magazine after representatives learned of her work.
Because applicants for the Top 10 College Women must be at least juniors, Bomkamp submitted her name for the honor this year. Glamour received close to 1,000 applications, she said.
Juggling a company, being a full-time student and traveling across the country can be difficult at times.
"My parents always say I'm a student first. So I really try to keep my focus on that. The balance is difficult sometimes - I have a lot on my plate," Bomkamp said. "But it's fun to go and do these. I enjoy the more fun part of what I get to do."
She is the youngest person to ever present at the Royal Society of Medicine's Medical Innovations Summit in London and was named a Newman Civic Fellow. She also has been featured by CNN, The New York Times, Popular Mechanics and BBC.
As for the added attention benefiting her work, Bomkamp said her company is planning clinical trials and raising private funds for her device, which was issued a patent last summer.
"There's been a lot of interest, a lot of people contacting me about my company," Bomkamp said. "It's good that word is getting out. I'm not sure the impact it will have yet - I guess we'll see over the next couple months."
