This is basically an actual triumph of the human spirit. As a group leader I supported a cohort of 25 international high school girls interested in STEM careers for the 1000 Girls, 1000 Futures program pilot, a part of the Global STEM Alliance of the New York Academy of Science. This was a 2016 goal that was a huge success for me (help at least 1 girl who is interested in STEM.) I’m re-upped with the program for 2017 as a group leader and a mentor. The girls, the mentors, the group leaders, the administrators and the program are all amazing and brilliant so don’t get me started gushing about it unless you have some time on your hands.
