Things I miss - Volunteering with Girls in STEM

A few of the things I love to do in my spare time is volunteer with girls interested in STEM careers and to volunteer as a judge at Innovation competitions.  Many summers, I get to do both as a judge for the innovation competition at eSchool4Girls, a summer entrepreneurship program for high school girls in New York City.  With the pandemic this year, I’m not sure we will be able to meet in person.  I am a big people person and an extrovert.  I love meeting in person for work or fun events as much Read more »
