“Listening to your keynote was a life-changing experience for me”. STEM Symposium, Nov 2014

The “real life” information JJ presented to the girls was invaluable!  The life lessons she shared with the girls were things I wished I had known at a much younger age. I watched the girls’ faces as JJ spoke and I know they were really taking in her words. ~ Pat, Career Specialist at Cuyahoga Heights High School

“It was a pleasure hearing you speak at the Project Lead The Way conference last week. I am so glad that my girls, the Femineers, were able to see a strong female working in the field of engineering.” – Jaklen Keshishyan

Thank you so much for taking the time to share your story in a technology career with our girls!  The Girls and STEM conference was a huge success!  The idea about looking to the future and setting goals for themselves really hit home with these girls.  I especially believe that sharing some seemingly inconsequential steps with them is so valuable;  taking notes about the conference, writing down things they like, pursuing a status of being financially independent, having a backup STEM degree.  All of these are such valuable pieces of advice.  ~ Mechelle Reynolds 7th Grade – STEM DiscoverySchool
