She++ Summit 2017!

Out of 500 applicants, I was one of 30 selected to be a 2017 She++ #include fellow! (its pound, not hashtag 🙂 ) Being able to go to the She++ Summit as a fellow has been such an amazing experience! I got to meet some of the smartest high schoolers and got to visit different tech companies in California including Facebook, Google, GoDaddy, Accel, and Groupon! I was so inspired to tour around these campuses and learn more about how different professionals became interested in STEM! It was also really cool to sit in on a Stanford lecture from Keith Schwarz on Cryptography and passwords.

During the Summit, I was also able to present ThinkSTEAM during the poster session as my initiative to increase diversity in STEM. I also got to talk about ThinkSTEAM to many different STEM professionals from Silicon Valley at the 4th annual She++ Gala. I had so much fun during this summit! Thank you to She++ for this wonderful opportunity!!! Check out some pictures from the summit below!
